Pickleball Wahines and Warriors wanted! Test your game and join Oahu's Poʻaono, which means Saturday Team Pickleball League!
WHEN: Every Saturday August 6 - September 10 with playoff on September 17.
TIME: 2:30-6:30pm timeframe. Plan on approximately 2 hours of playing time.
WHERE: Diamond Head Tennis Center, 3908 Paki Avenue, Honolulu (Kapiolani Regional Park)
FORMAT: Teams compete against a different team every Saturday until all teams have played each other. Similar to Major League Pro Pickleball, a team match consists of playing 2-3 games per event--Singles, Men's, Women's, and Mixed Doubles. Final rules will be similar to those listed here: MLP Descriptions (majorleaguepickleball.net)
SEASON: The season will depend upon the number of teams which register and will culminate in a playoff, awarding the top three teams as Oahu's Poʻaono's finest!
TEAMS: Players must be 18+ years old to participate, unless you have already competed at the 4.0 level. Teams must have a minimum of 4 members--2 men and 2 women. We strongly recommend 6 member teams as player availability changes throughout the season. Recruit your friends and family to REGISTER, where you will be placed into a pool for a DRAFT. Teams will be formed at the Team Captainsʻ meeting where players will be selected during the DRAFT.
**The DRAFT will be used in the spirit of creating competitive equitable play across the league, creating opportunities for players to play with new players, and compete against players who they havenʻt yet played.
SKILL LEVEL: Compete on a 4.0-5.0+ team. Don't know how you rate? No problem. See USA Pickleball's Definition of Player Skill Rating and a more detailed definition here to determine your skill level.
TEAM CAPTAINS: Must attend mandatory Team Captains' Meeting on July 26 or 27 to select team members from a DRAFT. In a draft, Team Captains take turns selecting from a pool of eligible players until all registrants have been placed on a team. Meeting location and time to be communicated to Team Captains.
REGISTRATION: Deadline is Saturday, July 23 midnight. Players are confirmed on a first come first serve basis when players have submitted their registration and release forms, paid their league fees, AND have received a confirmation from Poʻaono Pickleball League Coordinator of their team placement. Confirmed players will receive a copy of the league playbook once teams are formed through the DRAFT.
