Court Operations Team Overview

Pickleball Court Operations

…. to run all the great stuff this club does!


We are so lucky to have such a talented, engaged club. 

First we’ll start with a summary of how the Court Operations is organized.  Below that is a brief activity description, list of names and pictures of the generous members who stepped up to help keep this organization running smoothly.  Please thank them every chance you get!

The Director of Court Operations (DOCO) sits as a voting member on the Sequim Pickler Board of Directors.  This person is voted in by the membership, or a recommendation is made by the Nominating Committee to the Board for approval when there is an unexpected vacancy.

The Director of Courts Operations can select an Assistant Director of Court Operations (ADOCO) to help manage the operations and support or fill in for all the activity managed by this post.

The DOCO and ADOCO are members of and are supported by an advisory committee called Pickleball Court Operations Committee (PCOC).  This spreads the strategy, planning and decision making to a larger group and provides a forum for the membership if they need to voice issues or concerns about court operations. This is a formal committee with a Chair, Vice Chair, regular meetings, agendas and minutes.  When necessary, items are reported to the board by the DOCO during board meetings or in an emergency, through email.

The following activities are considered in scope for Court Operations and can be run by separate teams, reporting to the DOCO, all working within a framework established by the PCOC.

  1. Indoor Play (B&G Club)
  2. Outdoor Play (Carrie Blake Park Courts)
  3. League Play (includes tracking ladder play and ratings)
  4. Reffing (League play / tournaments)
  5. Tournaments (Regional and Local)
  6. Club Exchanges (to and from neighboring communities and clubs)
  7. Instructional Programs (Novice Lessons, Clinics, Kids Programs)

Pickleball Court Operations Committee (PCOC)  

PCOC CharterThe PCOC is an oversight committee reporting to the Sequim Picklers Board through the Director of Court Operations (DOCO). PCOC provides continuity for court operations as the board members and DOCO change over time. Oversight and action by the committee takes the burden and power away from single individuals. PCOC is an advisory group responsible for everything to do with picklball courts and court operations including input on court construction as it impacts court operations. Working on behalf of the club, we have accountability to make sure club interests are solicited and represented in all court operations issues and decisions. We will make decisions by consensus or when consensus cannot be reached, by motion and vote. Items of importance will be presented to the board via motion by this committee and presented by the DOCO.
