Thursday Individual Fixtures

HBPC is excited to announce a new weekly session for members called “Individual Fixtures” running on Thursday Nights.  This session will be played as a doubles format.  Each week that you “opt in” you will play in groups based on games results ranking and will partner with each player in your group. The ‘league’ session will be run through Pickleball Brackets which allows all game scores to be entered into the system and then contribute to your club ranking score. Players can move up and down groups each week depending on their game results. The new session will be starting next Thursday 15 February from 6pm -8:30pm.  This individual league will start off as a trial and will run for 10 weeks.  At anytime during this trial if you have any feedback or suggestions please don’t hesitate to let us know at any time.

Session details:

  • All players who select ‘opt in’ via pickelball brackets each week are ranked and grouped with players of a similar skill.
  • Pickleball Brackets will sort players into groups based on skill levels and will automatically create the partner pairings based on this ranking and create game cards.
  • Scores will be entered into Pickleball Brackets which will change ratings weekly
  • Pickleball Brackets will automatically move the bottom 2 from group above down and top 2 from group below allowing players to progress to more competitive games as their rating improves.

Benefits of this league:

  • You will play with and against different players each week
  • Expect competitive games due to players being of a similar skill level being grouped together
  • There is no commitment to playing every week.  If you are unable to play or wish to have a week off, simply don’t ‘opt in’ via the Pickleball Brackets website
  • Results of games in this league do NOT affect your skill ranking in Pickleball Brackets
