Always know who’s in

No more guessing the number of players that will show up. Know exactly who’s coming, what their skill rating is and if they’re bringing a guest. Players can self-report a skill rating or add one from DUPR, UTPR or WPR.

  • Player list

  • Track guests

  • Skill ratings

For large groups, you can even limit messaging to admins only.

  • Group chat

  • Session chat

  • Direct messaging

Give your players more time on the court

Every player in your group will see a live calendar of all your sessions throughout the week. They can set custom alerts to only be notified when and how they want. When everyone knows when the play times are, you can make sure everyone gets fair playing time.

  • Group pages with calendar

  • Player selected custom alerts

Control who gets in with private groups

Keep your group from growing too large or expanding outside your skill level. Make your group private and ensure only players you invite or approve get in.

  • Manage new member requests

  • Keep it private or share publicly

Players and organizers love it!

The pickleball groups at our facility are growing, and we needed an efficient tool to help with self-organization outside of weekly hosted events. Pickleheads helped improve the communication – eliminating mass group text message threads and keeping things streamlined.

We host various weekly play times at our club and organizing them used to be so time consuming. We moved to Pickleheads and invites and reminders go out automatically. Now instead of texting everybody to see who’s in, or finding a replacement for a drop-out, I just show up and play! More fun and playing, less texting!
