THE RED DEER PICKLEBALL LAUNCHED STAGE TWO OF OUR SUMMER PLAY PROGRAM ON JUNE 21.


PLAYERS CAN ENJOY PRIVATE COURT BOOKINGS 24/7, PARTICIPATE IN OUR WEEKLY MIXERS (SOME RESTRICTIONS) AND/OR  JOIN A 50 PERSON COHORT GROUP IN ORDER TO NON-HOUSEHOLD MENS, MIXED AND LADIES DOUBLES


IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO JOIN A COHORT GROUP, THEN YOUR PICKLEBALL PLAY WILL BE RESTRICTED TO SINGLES AND HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES


​FYI, WHEN ALBERTA HEALTH SERVICES (AHS) ANNOUNCED THEIR  STAGE  TWO PROGRAM, THEY OPENED UP "SPORTS COHORT GROUPS".  FOR PICKLEBALL, THAT ALLOWS OUR CLUB TO PROVIDE MEMBERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY "NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES" AT SELECT TIMES WITH SELECT COHORT GROUPINGS OF 50 PEOPLE OR LESS.  


THE CLUB  ORIGINALLY CREATED THREE COHORT NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES GROUPS  AND THESE FILLED UP  QUICKLY ON JUNE 21.   THEY WERE CALLED THE MORNING NORTH COHORT GROUP, THE MORNING SOUTH COHORT GROUP AND THE BLUE EVENING GROUP


WE THEN CREATED A 4TH COHORT GROUP CALLED THE 'NATIONALS COHORT GROUP" .   IT WELCOMES PLAYERS OF ALL SKILL LEVELS AND PLAYS 6PM TUESDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS AND ALSO AT 9AM ON SATURDAY AND MONDAY


COHORT GROUP MEMBERS CAN ALSO BOOK "PRIVATE COURTS" ANY DAY OF THE WEEK AND PLAY SPECIAL OUTINGS WITH MEMBERS OF YOUR COHORT.   ITS LIKE ONE BIG FAMILY THAT PLAYS TOGETHER.  PLAY AS OFTEN OR AS LITTLE AS YOU LIKE. 


IF YOU DONT LIKE THE AFOREMENTIONED LARGE COHORT GROUP OFFERINGS YOU CAN FORM YOUR OWN COHORT MINI GROUPS INSTEAD (ie 4-8-12-20 MEMBERS).   YOU WILL NEED TO CREATE A MEMBER LIST AND DISCUSS THE FINER DETAILS WITH ROB. WE NOW HAVE A WIDE VARITY OF COURT TIMES FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM 24/7.


ONCE YOU JOIN OR FORM A COHORT GROUP YOU CAN ALSO DO A PRIVATE BOOKINGS FOR NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES WITH 4 OTHER  MEMBERS FROM YOUR COHORT GROUP.         SEE THE PRIVATE COURT BOOKING ICON ON THE MAIN PAGE.


CLARIFICATION:   WHILE  YOU CAN PLAY HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES AGAINST OTHER HOUSEHOLD COUPLES OUTSIDE OF YOUR COHORT GROUP AT PRIVATE COURTS AND AT HH MIXER EVENTS,   THE CLUB IS NOT YET PERMITTING NON-HOUSEHOLD COHORT DOUBLES TEAMS TO PLAY AGAINST OTHER NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES TEAMS FROM A DIFFERENT COHORT.  SOUNDS LIKE SPLITTING HAIRS, BUT OUR  CLUB NEEDS TO DRAW THAT FINE LINE AT LEAST FOR A FEW WEEKS UNTIL STAGE TWO GETS ON A ROLL. AND ORGANIZED.    PATIENCE REQUIRED.  DON'T OVER THINK IT, JUST GO ENJOY SOME DOUBLES PLAY 


KEY POINT TO REMEMBER IS AS SOON AS YOU PLAY YOUR FIRST NON-HOUSEHOLD GAME WITH A COHORT GROUP,  YOU CAN NOT PLAY WITH OR AGAINST ANYONE OUTSIDE YOUR COHORT GROUP (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SINGLES PLAY AND HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES PLAY). 


 YOU ARE "STUCK" WITH THAT GROUP THROUGHOUT STAGE TWO , REGARDLESS OF ISOLATION EFFORTS    ETC ETC


 THIS IS TRUE WHETHER YOU ARE PLAYING IN OUR BEAUTIFUL 20 COURT FACILITY,  OR ANY OF THE OTHER  NEIGHBORHOOD COURTS OR EVEN OUT OF TOWN................ THINK IT THROUGH.   BIG DECISION.   DO NOT RUSH INTO IT. 


ONCE FORMED, EACH COHORT NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES GROUP WILL NEED TO DESIGNATE TWO PEOPLE TO BE CO-CAPTAINS OF THAT SPECIFIC COHORT GROUP.   THEY WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING EVERY SHIFT HAS A MONITOR AND THAT NOBODY ELSE LEAKS INTO THEIR COHORT REGISTERED LIST.    


WE ARE CONFIDENT WE HAVE  MAXIMIZED PLAY OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR MEMBERSHIP, GIVEN THE AHS RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO STRIVE TO MAXIMIZE COURT USAGE, PARTICULARILY IN THE PEEK MORNING AND EVENING TIME FRAMES. ONE STEP AT A TIME


PS.  IF YOU HEAR OF OTHER CLUBS AND LOCATIONS OFFERING UNLIMITED AND UNCONTROLLED NON-HOUSEHOLD DOUBLES PLAY IN ALBERTA, CHANCES ARE THEY ARE DOING SO ILLEGALLY .     THE RED DEER CLUB REMAINS COMMITTED TO SAFETY FIRST AND WILL CONTINUE TO ADHERE TO CITY AND AHS GUIDELINES
