What is the level of play for the tournament or are all levels represented?
Thanks for your question Phyllis. Except for a few players who have attended rating clinics in the USA or participated in one of the many USAPA sanctioned tournaments, most players in Nova Scotia are unrated which makes it difficult to create divisions in tournaments by only a “self-rating” guideline. While some tournaments (such as the Nova Scotia Provincials Tournament coming up at the end of May) will have specific age categories in each division, the organizers of the East Coast Pickleball Classic will simply be creating two age categories in each division. The average age of each team’s players will be tabulated and then a midway age will separate the entire field into two groups….for example it could be “under 55” men’s, women’s and mixed doubles and “over 55 men’s, women’s and mixed doubles. And as far as the level of play at this tournament, I would expect that most players are between 3.0 and 4.5 players.
Thanks ! That was very helpful; also wondering how a person would find out about various upcoming clinics on learning the game?
Currently, the East Dartmouth Community Center has a weekly introductory class hosted by experienced volunteers on Thursday mornings that may soon change from a single 90 minute session into two, 120 minute sessions. Over the next month or so, our website is going to be having its “Places To Play” section updated to reflect any changes to the existing days and times shown for each venue and will be including the addition of any introductory classes being offered. And finally, Pickleball Nova Scotia is supporting a Certification Clinic for new player instructors at the end of April with approximately 20 registered participants from all over the province taking part. It is anticipated that shortly thereafter, a more structured instructional program held over multiple sessions will become available at select venues in all regions. Naturally, those kinds of announcements will get posted on our website.
Thanks so much, once again , for your fast , informative reply! Will keep an eye out for new clinics!
