As we are now in the busy spring/summer pickleball play time, we wanted to remind everyone of the open play and etiquette rules established by the Annapolis Parks and Rec department and adopted by Annapolis Pickleball Club. These are now posted at Truxtun Park courts as well.
Pickleball Etiquette/Court Rules — Have fun… it’s just a game.
— Profanity, verbal/physical abuse and rude/obnoxious behavior will NOT be tolerated.
— No chairs or animals on the courts; bags must be hung on the fence.
— When entering or leaving the courts, please: (i) wait until your entire group is ready; (ii) wait for a break in play; (iii) travel to/from your court as quickly as possible as a group; and (iv) close the gate!
— Do not enter (or run behind) another court to retrieve your ball when a point is in play - wait for a break in play.
— When returning another court’s ball, please pick it up and make sure you return it to someone who is expecting it. DO NOT kick or swipe the ball back without looking first.
