ROUND ROBIN SKILL LEVEL GROUPS 

ROUND ROBIN PLAY is active nearly year-round for 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 by RESERVATION ONLY through Sign-Up Genius.  See details below and on the calendar!    The 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 RR will start at 2 pm with check-in at 1:45 pm.   You may only be in one group at a time. You can only reserve a position one week in advance and in one RR per week.  RRs are limited to 24-36 players, first come, first serve.  We have implemented the use of SignUpGenius for our Round Robin program.  Your coordinator will send you an invite weekly.  If you are not on a list, send an email to the coordinator and they can add you to the list (you must be a PPPA member).  Please wear your RED name tag to RR.

A “Round Robin” is a structured form of play organized by skill levels. During the Round Robin session you will play a number of games, each potentially with a different partner and against a different pair of opponents. It is designed so that all players are playing against people of roughly equal ability, which makes play fun and reasonably competitive for the majority of players.

Round Robins are only open to PPPA members. Please be sure of your skill level when deciding to participate in a RR. If you are unsure of your rating, use this guide to help you determine your skill level.

Round robins will take two winter breaks.  The first is from November 21 through November 27.  The second is from December 12 through January 2. Additionally, they will be cancelled if the playing surface is wet, icy, or snowy. Round robins will not be held if the temperature or wind chill are below 40 - 45 depending on other weather factors in the interests of player safety.

NOTE:  Sign-in begins at 1:45 pm for all Round Robins and play is 2-4:30 pm and limited to 24-36 players.  All participants need to stay for all 6 games.   RR is by RESERVATION ONLY!
