Global Pickleball Network Sign Up Instructions
Global Pickleball Network (GPN) is been used to administer the indoor programs at the Queen City Pickleball Hub . This will replace both SignUpGenius and Pickleball Brackets for tracking weekly sign ups and ladder programs. All players participating in the programs will be required to create a GPN account. To help you with this, we have created the following guide. If you need more assistance, please ask another member or stop by the front desk at the QCPH for any questions you might have.
The steps to register are:
- Join the QCPH Players Network
- Join the Groups & Ladders that interest you
- RSVP each week to reserve your spot
Joining the QCPH Players Network
The first thing to do is join the QCPH Players network. If you haven’t done so already, please use the following link to create your account:
*Note that a Premium account is not required, but it does provide some additional functionality you may be interested in.
Open Play Programs
GPN “Groups” exist for each of the recreational programs. Go to the Groups section in GPN and join any that interest you. Note that some require an official PRI/QCPH rating to join, and others are marked [Private] as they are managed by individual organizers.
The following programs have Groups that you can join (if eligible):
- Recreational Open Play
- All Levels Open Play
- Team Round Robin
- Senior 55+ Open Play
- Rated 3.0+ Open Play
- Rated 3.5+ Open Play
- Rated 4.0+ Open Play
GPN will be replacing Pickleball Brackets (PB) to administer the Ladder programs. A key difference is that your official PRI/QCPH club rating will not be affected by ladder play in GPN. A separate point system is used to track progress and is automatically calculated as scores get entered after each session.
To sign up for a ladder, go to the Leagues section of GPN, and look for the 2022 Fall Competitive Ladders. From here you should see a green “Sign up” button that will allow you to select the ladders you are interested in.
The following Ladders are available, join as many as you like!
- All Levels Ladder
- Men’s Ladder
- Women’s Ladder
- Intermediate Team Ladder
- Advanced Team Ladder
This is perhaps the most important part of the Fall programs - all players must RSVP each week for any sessions they plan to attend. This allows us to manage court bookings appropriately. Registration opens 6 days in advance, space is typically limited, and wait list functionality is built into GPN in case a spot comes available.
In GPN “Events” are created for each program session. There are many ways to find the event you are interested in, they are listed below Groups, Ladders, in the Events section and other places.
The quickest method may be to:
- Go to the QCPH Players Network homepage
- Scroll down to the “NETWORK CALENDAR” section
- Select the day you want to play
- Then select the Event you are interested in and update RSVP
