  PADDLING UP AT BEAR CREEK PARK COURTS

If you have been to the Bear Creek Park Courts, you should have noticed that paddling up there is "different." The 12 courts are laid out in 4 quads, each containing 3 courts. Each quad has a paddle up system attached to the fence of the middle court of the quad. When the courts are full, players should paddle up in "one" of the four paddle up systems for a specific quad, preferably in groups of FOUR players. This system works best if players only attempt to play in "one" quad. As always, we ask that you respect each other and be courteous to one another. It's a lot more fun for everyone if we all work to share and be inviting to others looking to play.




When someone asks to play in or you see someone that is looking to get in and are not sure how to do that, take the time to reach out to them. Please be considerate and kind to others looking for a game during Open Play hours. Those hours are:

Bear Creek – from sunrise until noon

Monument Valley Park – 8:00 a.m. until noon

Parking at Bear Creek courts: Parking spots at the courts are limited. Please do not create “new” parking spots. There is another, large parking lot across the street (Argus) and it is a short walk from there to the courts.

If you have any questions on any of this, please contact us at: info@pikespeakpickleball.com
