How do I join?

Before being able to practice, each student must fill out the membership form and complete a short liability waiver through RSConnect. We mainly communicate with everyone via the GroupMe app. The link to join can be found here.

Are beginners welcome?

Yes! Everyone, regardless of skill level, is encouraged to come out to practice. We also host beginner clinics where you can get introduced to the sport in a less intense atmosphere. There are no tryouts.

Do I need to have my own paddle and pickleball?

No, the officers will be able to supply paddles and balls that you can use during practice. In order to check out a paddle, you must leave your Gator ID with an officer while renting a paddle.

Is there a strict attendance policy?

No, feel free to come to as many practices as you want! We will take attendance at practice but you will not be removed if you do not attend regularly.
