Skill Level Drop In Play

How It Works

Players don't need to sign up, just "drop-in" anytime during the scheduled time period and put your paddle in the rack. There are 5 different TPC skill level drop-in play time periods -2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0  (see posted schedule).

  • Players should participate in the appropriate skill level.  
  • If you are unsure of your skill level you can ask to be rated, watch for scheduled rating sessions to sign up.  You must play at your designated TPC Skill Level as per the "membership roster" located under the Membership tab on the TPC website.  New TPC members must go through the rating process for initial entry into a given skill level drop in.  Existing TPC members must go through the rating process and receive a higher rating to move up levels. 
  • You can only play at one skill level.
  • Four players will play a game to eleven points, win by two.
  • If no other players are waiting to play, the same four players may continue to play another game.
  • If new waiting players are present, the waiting players have priority for court access.
  • During heavy player "traffic" times, please suspend "win by two" scoring and implement "first team to eleven" scoring.
  • Players can not stack paddles during Skill Level Drop In.
  • Players should mix it up and not play with the same player more than twice.
  • Have Fun!

There will be laminated signs for each skill group in the storage locker that players should attach near the paddle rack during each skill level drop-in period.  This should help keep players who haven’t read the schedule from putting their paddles in the rack if they aren’t in that skill group.  Please remove the sign and put it back in the storage locker when the drop-in time is over.
