Code of Conduct

Tustin Pickleball was founded with a commitment to Respect, Integrity, Sportsmanship, and Accountability.


In this spirit, we welcome all to these courts—regardless of gender, place of origin, ethnicity, religion, political belief, economic status, or ability.


To play here, it is expected that you:


  1. Abide by the International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) rules and regulations.

  2. Be a “Pickleball Ambassador.” Treat everyone with courtesy and respect. Be especially welcoming and helpful to newcomers and visitors.

  3. Respect the Tustin Pickleball facilities and property. Keep them clean and in good working order.

  4. Pitch in. Help to set up and tear down whenever possible.

  5. Strive to positively reinforce and influence other players. Encourage their growth, promote teamwork, and emphasize fun.

  6. Accept responsibility for any guests you bring to the courts. Make sure they abide by these rules.

  7. Be respectful of players engaged in play and strive to avoid interfering with their play.

  8. Promote good sportsmanship and fairness in all aspects of play—line calls, accommodating waiting players, playing with players of a lower or higher skill level.

  9. Refrain from giving unsolicited coaching or advice, or criticizing another player’s skills.

  10. Dress for safe and enjoyable play. Wear appropriate (for Pickleball), and non-offensive attire. Shirts and court shoes are a must.


Finally, anyone who engages in physical or verbal behavior that threatens the health, safety and/or physical and mental well-being of others, including the use of profanity, alcohol, tobacco and/or drugs, will not be tolerated.


Failure to abide by this Code may result in immediate removal from the courts and, possibly, disciplinary action by the Tustin Pickleball Board of Directors.
