SEBRING — The South Central Florida Pickleball League was established five years ago to allow the better players to improve their game by having regular opportunities to compete at a higher level. This year, the league has expanded to six teams from five with the addition of Sun ‘n Lake. The returning teams are: Lake Ashton, Del Webb/Orlando, Riverbend/LaBelle, Highlands Ridge and Tanglewood.
On Thursday, Riverbend met Tanglewood in the first match of the season. The games were played at the eight-court Sun ‘n Lake facility. Each team consisted of four pairs ranked A, B, C and D.
In the round robin series, each team played a best two out of three sets against each other team. The complex scoring system awards more points for the games between evenly matched teams. The greatest number of points is earned in the clash between the top two teams.
