Hello Pickledillys. 

We have a few items to bring to your attention.

1) This is a last call for anyone interested in attending the social in honor of Mike and Loretta Beckner. If you have not notified Nancy Vermilye (vermilye01@msn.com), please do so ASAP, as we have to have a final count by May 25th. The social is at 5:00 PM on June 3rd at Trios Grill in the Alley, and will be a $15.00 per person buffet dinner.

2) Thank you all for being so patient with the new check-in system at Odell Weeks. With this new system, the staff at Odell Weeks are able to track the number of players using the facility to play pickleball. The staff has agreed to put the player’s level into the system for us, but this will require patience again on your part. The next time you go into the gym you will be asked to give your rated level. Once they have that in the system, you will not be asked again. Having this information will allow us to have an exact count of who is using the courts and make a fair distribution of designated courts. Thank you for your help.

3) We will be keeping an eye on the balls in the gym on a weekly basis to make sure there are 3 balls per court. Jim and Nancy are the only people authorized to get balls from the front desk. The exception is that a broken ball may be exchanged for a new one. Thank you for understanding. 

Nancy and Jim   

Welcome to our site!

Welcome to the website for the Aiken Pickledillys!  Our intent is to promote the game of pickleball and to provide competitive and social pickleball activities. Our goal is to encourage sportsmanship and camaraderie through fun and exercise by playing the exciting and addictive sport of pickleball.

The game is easy to learn and really fun to play. It can be played on a variety of levels from casual to very competitive.  Pickleball offers players of all ages a good physical workout and the opportunity to meet a diverse group of people who share the passion that surrounds this exciting sport.

We play at the Odell Weeks Activities Center on six indoor courts.  Go to the "Calendar" tab on the main menu for our current playing schedule.  In addition, we have 4 purpose built pickleball courts and 4 dual purpose pickleball/tennis courts located behind Odell Weeks.  These 8 public lighted courts are available year round.

Odell Weeks is located at 1700 Whiskey Rd in Aiken.  The phone # is 803-642-7631. 

Come join us!

THE AIKEN PICKLEDILLYS ARE GRATEFUL TO THE STAFF AND EMPLOYEES AT THE CITY OF AIKEN'S PARK, RECREATION AND TOURISM DEPARTMENT AND AT THE ODELL WEEKS ACTIVITY CENTER FOR THEIR SUPPORT TO OUR PROGRAM

General guidelines 

In order to provide the best possible playing experience for everyone, the Pickledillys operate under a set of guidelines. Currently we have three types of play spread throughout the available times each day.  These include drop-in play with all levels mixing together, drop-in play with courts designated by skill level, and court reservation play.  When courts are designated by skill level, we have different schematics (weekday mornings, weekday evenings, and weekends) based on the court usage for different skill levels during those times.  These designations are periodically reviewed and adjusted.    

All players who participate in drop-in play by skill levels need to be rated by the committee.  Visitors may play for a brief period at the level the player representatives feel is appropriate.  Players who are visiting for a longer term and who have a rating at another location should check with the player representatives at that level to determine if that rating is acceptable for our local system.

----------------------------------------------

Guidelines for reserving courts via Sign-up Genius

1) You must have at least four people committed to playing on the court BEFORE you make the reservation.  At least four names MUST be included on the sign-up  

2) Reservations must be made by midnight the day before playing time.  After midnight, any unreserved courts will revert to free play for that day.  This is to allow other players to view the court situation before making a decision on whether to go over for free play on that day.   

3) Please be considerate of your fellow players and choose to attend either drop-in play or court reservation time, but not both on the same day. It is not allowed for a player to be incuded on two court reservation slots on the same day.
