Join us Monday, July 4, for a morning of social mixed doubles. Show up at BRC at 9:00 AM and expect to play four or five rounds of doubles, ending by 11:30. Pairings will be random and "gender-indifferent." The field will be limited to 30 players so that nobody has to sit out more than one round. All are welcome.
BRC has purchased a "starter kit" of pickleball nets, paddles and balls with the goal of offering this fun and rapidly growing sport to our membership on a trial basis. At the conclusion of the 4th of July Round Robin (11:30 or so), we will have two pickleball courts set up on Court 3, and Rich Murray and other experienced BRC pickleballers will be on hand to demonstrate this sport and offer all who are interested tips and a chance to play. Don't miss this opportunity. Once you try it, you'll understand why this sport is growing so rapidly. It is flat out fun!!

Men's Doubles League; Sign Up Now! Saturday Mornings 10AM
This very successful league is ready to start play on July 9th. Registration starts immediately and is first come and limited to 8 Teams.
For those unfamiliar this is for individuals (no pairings) and is aimed at USTA combined rating of approx 7.5 to create teams of equal strength; If unfamiliar with your rating we will help assign. Those who did play in prior seasons, an attempt will be made for you to have a new partner (though pairings are really arbitrary).
We ask that as a generalization you are available Saturday mornings - though there is a flex element to the play, the league members are counting on play Saturdays and if for some reason you are unable to make a match, unless all agree you should find a sub (from a list we provide). Note we will abide by BRC rules on court availability and may skip weeks when the club has functions.
The rules of league play simple - standard match play with options of tie break for 3rd set if even one of the group prefers that.
This is a fun play, perfect way to meet members and have competitive weekly matches.
To sign up, or if you have questions, please contact
