Taking AIM : Pickleball Updates!

June 1, 2018

 

Our Mission: 

 

To be the premier Indoor Pickleball facility in Southern California by providing an inviting experience for all players of all levels. 

 

The Spirit of Pickleball

 

Pickleball was created as a way to literally be inclusive for all. The best thing about Pickleball is that exclusivity doesn't exist.  It's the only sport where physical skill is no match and bears no fruit to someone who knows that what lies beneath is truly a game of chess.  

 

For me, it is the ultimate game for someone who likes to compete but more importantly for those who like to be social. We aren't here playing for ranking, medals, money, or our next lucrative contract, especially during open play.  

 

If you are here to worry only about winning, it's possible that pickleball may not be the sport for you.  Sometimes the paddles may not line up with the person you were hoping to play with.  That doesn't give you the right to skip over them, tell them you don't want to play with them, or tell them to go to another court.  At some point, that will come back around and YOU will be the person that someone doesn't want to play with or that gets told to go to the other court.   At the end of the day, it is one game.  Meet someone new, learn, work on your game. If you lose, go put your paddle back in line.  Again, it is only one game.  

 

Code of Conduct

 

1.  Golden Rule - Self explanatory 

2.  Respect the Game and Respect Each Other - Pickleball has given us so much.  The least we can do is show respect.

 

3.  Be Fair and Honest - No one likes to lose.  No one likes a dishonest winner.  Win with integrity

 

4.  Be Inclusive -  Everyone deserves a chance to learn this game.  Take the time to play with someone new.  

 

5.  Do not Criticize -  Hey You.  Yes you.  The one who hits into the net every other point.  Did you really just criticize your playing partner for doing the same?  

 

6.  Do not Gossip - EVERYONE is guilty of this at some point.  But let's be honest, we are far from high school anymore.  Save it for your Bunco Group. 

 

7.  Check Your Ego/Attitude at the Door - Everyone has problems.  Let's make this a place where we can leave them at the door and get away for a few hours.  For some, this is the only chance during the week. 

8.  PAY IT FORWARD - Think about who first introduced you to pickleball?  You owe that person the gratitude of extending that knowledge to every person who stands in the very shoes that you were in when you first started.

 

9. Be Happy! - If you can't be happy and have fun playing this game, we need to talk.
