See more on our Flex Prize Leagues page.

I Don't Know My Skill Level?

If you don’t know your skill level, there are resources online to help you guess your level. You can also see our page about it: Skill Ratings

We highly recommend that you use your DUPR or similar rating if you have one. If you don’t have one, guess your skill level based on the people you play with if they have one, or attend a clinic/coaching and have the instructor guess your rating.

Message us if you’d like to signup, but still don’t know your rating.

Where is First Coast Pickleball?

Northeast Florida. We established in Palm Coast, Florida in 2023. This dream was born in Jacksonville, FL in 2021. We currently have players in Northeast Florida from Jacksonville to St Augustine, Clay County to Flagler County, etc. It is our goal to make all play accessible within reason when choosing us. This is why we divide our players and divisions into different regions to make sure they won't have to travel too far.

Who We Are...

A small group of dedicated professionals that grew up playing tennis and other sports. We've worked closely with sports leagues and sports stores for the past 20+ years. We enjoy the social and friendship aspect of sports as much as the competition. Pickleball took over our lives in 2021 and it's been our dream to give back to the great community surrounding pickleball. Using our unique talents and genuine care for others, we established First Coast Pickleball to run programs and events for the betterment of local communities.

Why Choose Us?

We carefully organize our programs and events to give back the most that we can to those participating in or helping out. Sometimes we give back too much, so we are currently seeking sponsors. It is not our goal to get rich from First Coast Pickleball, but it is instead our goal to provide a rich experience. We have always made decisions to the benefit of others, and we will not change that. Our promise to you and all members/sponsors/partners of First Coast Pickleball is that you will always be 1st. It's in our name.

How To Play With Us

Captains

Captains are the leaders of their team.
Among other things, you will be responsible for posting scores and lineups per match.

Please visit our Captain’s Corner for a full rundown on the responsibilities expected of you, as well as how to get started.

Players

Players are the core of every team.
You are expected to show up and have fun!

Please visit the link below for more information on joining a team or finding a team.

Schedules

Seasons consist of home and away matches for each team. Captains communicate with one another and find a time to play their pre-determined matchups each week.

Playoffs are organized after make-up matches are played.

Sponsors

Teamwork is important to us. Providing the best for our members is an even higher priority.

Greater opportunities are present when we work together. 

Rules & Scheduling

The rules of play are currently being finalized, but for the most part, they are common sense. Our official rules will be available before the January 2024 season starts. We will update our site by that time, and we will also notify team captains.

Scheduling at this moment will be formatted in the following manner:

Each team will be assigned an opponent to be played per week, by the week’s end. All matches will be scheduled and viewable at the start of the season (except playoffs). It is up to the captain’s to work together and find a time that will work for that match. One team will be designated as Home and one as Away. The Home team will use their facility for their Home match.

This is flexible team scheduling, and we’re organizing this way due to the current court availabilities. We are working with clubs and facilities on improving the scheduling and getting guaranteed time slots, but this will unlikely be available by January 2024.

Matches & Scoring

Each team will have 3-5 lines of play that will match against their opponents 3-5 lines of play. Your first line (Line 1) will be your strongest players, and your last line (Line 3-5) will be your weakest players.

At this moment, we are only a Doubles Pickleball League, so the lines will be 2 vs 2. We offer Men’s, Women’s, & Mixed teams; both Seniors and Adults divisions.

Scoring is done as follows:

Each game will be played to 11 points, win by 2. Matches are the best two out of three games. If a third game must be played to determine the winner, that game is played to 5 points, win by 2.

In the example: Home won Game 1 and Away won Game 2, so they will need to play Game 3 to determine the winner. Game 3 is played to 5, win by 2.

Match time estimates will range between 30 minutes up to 90 minutes, depending on how closely players are matched in skill level.
