Structure of Leagues:

Warm-up Game: The first game each week will be a social warm-up game. This game will not count towards standings and will not be entered into DUPR. Find any four players, warm up and play. 

League Games: Following the warm-up game, players move to their assigned courts and play a round robin; every player partners once with the other three players. These League games will be entered in DUPR and factored into the League standings.

Court Assignments: Our League has been designed to introduce new players to each other and promote matchplay diversity. This structure will allow you to play with a wide variety of players in a social but competitive experience.

Subs: If you need to miss a session, please secure your own sub of a similar skill level. You can use our Sub Channel in the CityPickle Community Slack. If you cannot find a sub, please notify CityPickle at least 48 hours in advance, and we will help. 

DUPR-verified Leagues: Some of our League registrations are DUPR-verified. For DUPR-verified Leagues, all players will link their DUPR account to ensure they are playing in the designated skill range. Not seeing the DUPR rating option? Please make sure your CityPickle app is updated. Don’t have a DUPR? Join one of our DUPR-verified Open Plays (see options here) to get your rating or simply log matches you play with others who have DUPR accounts. Visit our DUPR FAQ page for more.

Rankings will be determined by overall record and head-to-head records.

You’ll be invited to join a specific channel in our Slack Community to further connect with the other players in your league and to receive weekly league updates.
