LPA Members pay a fee of $1/session. Guests may play at Talent Hall if invited by a LPA member, for $2/session. These session funds are the primary method of funding all LPA programs. LPA is a NH nonprofit corporation organized to play pickleball at Talent Hall.
To play regularly at Talent Hall, you must be an LPA member. Litchfield residents may join for a one-time fee of $10. Nonresidents may join LPA for a one time fee of $20. A Recurring Fee of $10 per calendar year will be levied for members who are residents, and $20 per calendar year for nonresidents. If you join in October, November, or December, then your joining fee covers you for the following calendar year as well. The Recurring Fees are used to fund contributions to the Litchfield Recreation Commission. Nonresidents are charged higher membership fees because the Litchfield residents indirectly fund Talent Hall through their real estate taxes.
Talent Hall has two indoor courts and we play 12 to 20 sessions/week currently. We typically have over 100 active members, so we are concerned about potential overcrowding, i.e., greater than 12 players/session. Therefore, the LPA board must approve each application. You should play a few sessions to see if LPA is a good fit for your pickleball venue.
We communicate with our members primarily through our website and, occasionally, through email. Members must be computer-literate, possess an email address, and be able to access our website via computer, tablet, or smart phone.
