We have over 400 members of the Madison Pickleball Meetup Group. While the group's 11 organizers are doing our best to schedule as many events as possible, we understand that many of you are frustrated when you don't run across them in time and try to sign up, only to be put on a waitlist.
There are a couple of things you can do about this. The first is to become a co-organizer yourself! Then you can schedule events when and where you want them and indicate the skill levels you're trying to attract, so you can have reasonable competition. Just click on the "Contact Organizers" button on the home page and we'll be happy (delighted, really) to help you get started.
The second is to not wait for an event to be scheduled but to reach out to other players whom you've met at a meetup and invite them to a game to be arranged directly among yourselves. Below are instructions for how to go about it.
