About Us



The Boulder Paddle League was founded in 2005 by Steve Filmer, who continues to run the league with the help of Bob Ziegenhagen and John Stegner. The league's mission is to provide structure and a competitive framework for platform tennis in Boulder, as well as to help grow the sport in Colorado. CourtFixers5309Starting with a group of 12 players in 2005, the league merged with another small league run by Adam Kimberly called the "Boulder Wires" in 2012. The Boulder Paddle League has now grown to over 36 players with a network of over 100 players many of which are substitutes. The league's home base is the North Boulder Recreation Center where there are two public courts. Here the players have been dedicated stewards of the facilities volunteering their time and money to maintain and improve this great public resource. Currently they are raising money to upgrade the lights to create safer and more enjoyable playing conditions.

Format and Rules


1-up 1-down (with adjusted/NET points)

(see League Format page for more info)



A game is worth a point. If you win a set, you get 7 points, regardless if you finished with 6 or 7 games. (for example: If you win a set 6-4, you get 7 points.) Rewards a win more. TIEBREAK rule: if 2 players are tied in points after the 3rd set, then a singles tiebreaker will ensue - Play singles lines, 2 serves, First to 7, win by 2. (3-way tie click here).


Time issues:

In the event you run out of time (ie. at 7:30pm) or the lights go out during the 3rd set, the current set score fast forwards for scoring purposes. So 4-3 becomes 7-6 for example. To avoid this issue, please arrive early to warm up and start your match within 10 minutes of start time.


NET Points: game points are weighted as it is increasingly harder to win a game on the higher courts. So we have a “Net Points” multiplier.

Court 1: 1 game won = 1.7 Net points

Court 2: 1 game won = 1.6 Net points

Court 3: 1 game won = 1.5 Net points

Court 4: 1 game won = 1.4 Net points

Court 5: 1 game won = 1.3 Net points

Court 6: 1 game won = 1.2 Net points

Court 7: 1 game won = 1.1 Net points

Court 8: 1 game won = 1.0 Net points


In past seasons the points have correlated very accurately to performance (and attendance).


arrowyellow1a1aSub Rules:

If you are going to miss a week then YOU have to find someone to fill your spot. The sub cannot move you up a court but has the ability to hold your position on that court for the next week provided that they don't finish last with their points that night playing. If the sub ties with a non-sub to move down, the sub automatically moves down (no tiebreaker is played).


arrowyellow1a2aSub Points:

When you get a sub and they show up and play, you get 10 points towards the points race (these 10 points have nothing to do with moving up or down)


If you don't get a sub (and someone else has to scramble and get one for you) then you get 0 points for that week -- and you risk your position in the league for next season.
