What is Drop-in play?
Drop in play is similar to playing at a public court (except it’s way nicer at Paddle Up :-). Drop in play is not organized play, however normal pickleball etiquette is expected, such as paddle stacking, to share the courts.
What are the fees for court rentals?
Court fees vary by membership level. See our membership and pricing page for full details.
Are there guest fees?
There is a $10 daily guest fee for visitors playing on a members private court. Children under 16 do not pay guest fees. There is a maximum of 3 guest fees per court for members. Visitor (full price) court rentals do not have guest fees (this is included in the price $36/$44/hr)
How many guests can I bring?
We don’t put a limit on guests, but we recommend 4-8 people max to share a court for an hour or two. A typical game lasts 15 minutes and this allows for a good amount of play with some rest in between.
Can fees be split up evenly amongst players, or does one person have to pay?
The court reservation is paid in advance by one person. Guest fees can be paid by the guests or the member.
