10 a.m.-noon Level Open Play:
- High Intermediate to Advanced (3.5 and up)
- Low to Medium Intermediate (2.5-3.0)
Players will be encouraged to enter their designated court via the specific court gates. Signage will be posted to help guide and direct players. Please do not walk across a game that is in progress.
Paddle Saddles will be utilized to organize each foursome by level. If you would like to keep your foursome together, you will be able to do this by moving to the back of the line and staying together as a group while moving to the front together. You may need to wait out one extra game to keep your group together. If there are one or two players extra beyond your foursome at your level, staying together as a foursome might not be possible. Check with the court monitor if you are unsure.
A staff court monitor will be available to help manage groups, when needed. Please be patient with us as we refine this new format that will hopefully meet the needs of the various levels we see on a daily basis at our facility. Thank you in advance for your patience!

The best place to park during the outdoor season is at the east end of the Vail Village Parking Structure, which is less than a five minute walk to Golden Peak. There are only eight designated, painted parking spots at the Golden Peak Pickleball Center. If the eight spots are taken when you arrive to play, please park in the Vail Village Parking Structure - the walk from the structure to the courts is only a few minutes; view a parking-to-courts map here if you are not familiar with area. We ask that when arriving to the courts, participants and spectators do not park on the grass or in any undesignated spot. If players have parked illegally, they will not be allowed to play pickleball that day. We thank you for your cooperation in helping us ensure that the parking lot remains safe and our grass remains undamaged.
Under no circumstances is parking permitted in the neighboring lots of the Golden Peak Pickleball Center (for example, Texas Townhomes). The Golden Peak Pickleball Center is not responsible if cars are ticketed or booted if they are parked in neighboring parking lots.
CODE OF CONDUCT & ETIQUETTE GUIDELINES
The Vail Recreation District has adopted a set of Code of Conduct and Etiquette & Safety Guidelines for pickleball. All seasonal and annual passholders will be expected to agree to and respect these standards. The guidelines will also be posted at the courts so non-passholders can also be aware of expectations. Thank you for embracing these guidelines that are intended to foster an inclusive, kind and welcoming environment for all who visit our courts.
