Being thorough in this step will help ensure a smooth scheduling process moving forward.

With Cheddar Up, setting up your pickleball event is a breeze. Create a new collection and fill in the necessary details, such as the event name, location, or any special rules. Then, create a timeslot sign up form. You can group slots by skill level categories and even set up repeat times. You can also use Cheddar Up’s custom forms to collect additional information, such as the skill level or rating, gender, or age group. Don’t forget to set a maximum number of players!
