What’s My Rating?
One of the biggest question players have (or argue with other players about!) is their Rating. You have probably heard, ‘I’m a 4.5’ or ‘You’re not a 4.5!’, around your local pickleball court.
The truth is, pickleball has a player rating system and it does follow some guidelines, but overall it can be a bit subjective.

KERRY PARK COURTS UPDATE - JULY 6, 2022
The following email was received from Darcy Kulai, Sport Programmer at Kerry Park. If you want the most current information from the CVRD you should contact Darcy directly and have your name added to his contact list. If you have questions about Kerry Park court usage Darcy is the best point of contact.
"Hello pickleball enthusiasts, you may have already heard but the new outdoor pickleball courts behind Kerry Park Rec are open for use. For more info on usage and booking please visit https://www.cvrd.ca/3363/South-Cowichan-Outdoor-Pickleball-Comple but basically it boils down to this: there are 6 courts and courts 1-4 can be reserved online for $5 for 2 hours. Courts 5-6 cannot be reserved and are always on a first come first serve basis. If courts 1-4 are not in use/reserved they are also available on a first come first serve basis.
In terms of indoor drop-in we will continue with the Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat 9:30 am – 12:00 pm as long as there is interest but if numbers drop off due to everyone wanting to play outside we may need to revisit. I will keep you all posted if any changes are made.
Please let me know if you have any questions,
Kerry Park Recreation Centre
