Pickleball League Information

Team Pickleball

This is the first inaugural spring season for Stonewall Sports Kansas City. We are introducing a new format to allow players to form teams of up to ten players. The goal is to help build more community for Pickleball and give Pickleball more spectators during matches. For kickball/softball players, this may be your chance to expand your team into this sport! Pickleball rules are still the same - doubles playing to 11 points per match. However, teams will play on two courts with up to five matches on each court. Teams will be scored on the following:

  • Teams will win the week by winning a majority of their matches.
  • Teams will also accumulate points during matches, contributing to their tournament standing.
  • Individuals will accumulate points during their matches, contributing to their score on DUPR.

Here's an example scenario with a team of ten and playing a maximum of five games per court:

Pickled Bottoms (Home Team) vs Pride Paddlers (Away Team)
Location: Macken Park
Time: 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Court 1 Pickled Bottoms - Home Team Player Pride Paddlers - Away Team Player Score
Match 1 Jessica & Kim ✅ Brandon & Tim 11-8
Match 2 Jake & Jane Jeff & Alex ✅ 10-11
Match 3 Jessica & Mark ✅ Joann & Alex 11-5
Match 4 Mark & Thomas Scott & Jackie ✅ 5-11
Match 5 Jake & Amber Ryan & Scott ✅ 9-11
Court 2 Pickled Bottoms - Home Team Player Pride Paddlers - Away Team Player Score
Match 1 Ian & Amber ✅ Jackie & Tammy 11-8
Match 2 Thomas & Kathy Brandon & Ryan ✅ 9-11
Match 3 Jane & Logan ✅ Andre & Tim 11-9
Match 4 Logan & Ian Tammy & Andre ✅ 8-11
Match 5 Kathy & Kim Jeff & Joann ✅ 10-11

Pride Paddlers win their week by winning 6 out of 10 matches. Their total score across the 10 matches is 96.

Picked bottoms won 4 out of 10 matches. Their total points is 95. Individually, they earn the total points in their matches. For example, Jessica earned 22 points. Kim earned 21 points. Mark earned 16 points, and Thomas earned 15 points.

DUPR Rating System

Matches this season will be tracked using DUPR. The system will allow for more competitive team matchups based on skill levels and will enable players to register for tournaments and events run by other DUPR clubs in the Kansas City area. Please ensure that your DUPR account email matches the one used for Stonewall registration. Contact David for any discrepancies to ensure proper score synchronization. Learn more about the DUPR ranking and point system on their official blog.

LEAGUE STRUCTURE

  • Divisions: Recreation/Beginners and Intermediate/Competitive
    • Register for the recreation and beginners league if socialization is your main priority and winning is not at the top of your list. The key term is recreation. You are here to meet people and form bonds. This division accommodates teams with 2-3 intermediate/competitive players at maximum, but the overwhelming majority should be new to pickleball or beginners.
    • Register for the intermediate to competitive division if the majority of your teammates are competitive and consider winning to be at the top of playing pickleball, and if you consider yourself to be a 3.25 or higher in DUPR in either doubles or singles.
  • Players Per Team: Average of 8 per team with a maximum of 10 players per team. If you have 8 or less on your team, you will need to recruit free agents to hit 8 players, or free agents will be matched with your team. 
  • Team Limit: 12 for each division. Two teams in each division are already reserved as free agent teams
  • Gameplay: Up to ten matches, played to 11 points. If matches are tied, points will determine the winner
  • Teams with < 8 players will have their teams filled with free agents until they reach eight players
