Club Policies:

Guest Policy:

Many Pickleball club members have “overnight houseguests” and “visiting day” guests who are interested in playing Pickleball.  All members and their guests are welcome to play during Open Play times, noted in green on the schedule and available at least once each day of the week and all day on Sunday.

January 1st through March 31st:
After 12:00 noon, Pickleball club members with “overnight” guests who already play Pickleball, may bring guests to skill level play that is appropriate to the level of the guest. Please do not bring guests to the courts before noon on Monday through Saturday.  “Day” guests may play during Open play only.

April 1st through December 31st:
Pickleball club members with “overnight” guests, may bring them to any skill level play that is appropriate to the level of the guest. “Overnight” guests are welcome at Men's and Women's play.  “Day” guests may play during Open play only.

All Year, Pickleball Club members shall: use the Scheduler (for skill level, Men's or Women's play), indicate the guest and obtain a signed Liability Waiver before playing begins.  Members are to vet the skill level of the guest so that he or she is playing at the appropriate level.  For example, a novice guest player should not be invited to play during 2.5, 3.0 or 3.5 playing times.

Copies of the Liability Waiver are available in the courtside maintenance room.  The completed waiver should be left on the clipboard in the maintenance room or handed to a Pickleball Club board member. 

Pickleball Liability Waiver


Renter Policy:

Renters in Bonita Bay are eligible to join the Pickleball Club and to play during dedicated Pickleball Club times.  Renters, as true for residents, must sign a liability waiver and pay the club dues.  Also, they must play within their appropriate skill level.

Bonita Bay Pickleball Scheduler (only available to Club Members):

A scheduling tool is available to club members to help us coordinate play on our four courts.  We use a web based system (KeepandShare.com) that is inexpensive and easy to use.

Please note that out of respect to those neighbors who live near our courts we ask that there be NO PLAY BEFORE 8AM.

Please refer to our Members Web Site for more information.

Court Schedule Priority:

  1. Pickleball Club members are those Bonita Bay residents who have both a Membership Form and Liability Waiver Release on file and have paid the $25 annual dues.  Only Pickleball members are eligible to play during the designated Pickleball time slots, other than Open Play. 
  2. Short-term house guests of BB Pickleball members may play during designated time slots that are consistent with their skill levels, providing they have executed a liability waiver. Waiver forms will be available in the court maintenance locker.
  3. Renters (long and short term) in Bonita Bay, are welcome to play during designated Pickleball times, provided they have executed a liability waiver and paid the club dues.
  4. Pickleball Club members are asked to use courts 1 & 2 first and only use courts 3 & 4 when 10 or more players are present.
  5. Tennis players have priority on Courts 3 & 4 during all designated Tennis times.  In addition, Tennis players may play whenever courts 3 & 4 are open, recognizing that if additional (more than will fill Courts 1 & 2) Pickleball players arrive to play in their designated time slot, courts 3 & 4 will be offered to the Pickleball players immediately.
  6. Likewise, whenever Courts 3 & 4 are empty during designated Tennis times, Pickleball players may use those courts, recognizing that if Tennis players arrive, courts 3 & 4 will be offered to the Tennis players immediately.
