This division will feature teams that may have racquet sport experience, but aren't veteran Pickleball players. This division will also feature teams that are new to Pickleball. Players should be able to sustain rallies, but won't necessarily be able to implement advanced Pickleball techniques, such as drop shots, lobs and spin shots. Hard smashing is discouraged in the Recreational division. Teams in this division must have a “fun first” approach to every game.
This division will feature teams that have Pickleball experience. Players should be able to sustain rallies, and will likely have some more advanced Pickleball techniques, such as: drop shots, lobs and spin shots. Occasional hard smashing is permitted in the Recreational Plus division, but it must remain controlled at all times. Not all players need to be highly skilled; it is more about the average skill and competitiveness of the team as a whole.
