As we continue to grow, our mission at the Gilruth Center is one that mirrors the USAPA’s code of conduct with a few additions.

Every person involved in pickleball (participant, official, volunteer, representative, and spectator) agrees to the following:

  1. I will promote and respect the game of pickleball.
  2. I will foster a community of pickleballers with the highest intentions.
  3. I will not move a paddle unless it is my own. Players are limited to only placing one paddle in the stack rotation.
  4. I will not be involved in unsportsmanlike conduct or encourage others to do so.
  5. I will not act in a way that would endanger the health, safety or wellbeing of others.
  6. I will not use foul language or obscene gestures.
  7. I will treat others and myself with respect.
  8. I will play fair and honest.
  9. I will not brag about my position.
  10. I will follow the Golden Rule of doing unto others as I would have them do unto me.
  11. I will abide by the Gilruth Center Code of Conduct and demonstrate proper housekeeping and facility tidiness. This includes the floor and equipment.

The above Code applies in all situations that relate directly or indirectly to pickleball play.
