Microsoft Lunch Time Pickup
Interested in playing lunch time pickup at Microsoft? Here are some frequently asked questions.
Please don't hesistate to contact us if you want to know more. We love new players.
Where are the games?
The fields are on the Microsoft campus, marked on this map.
Drive to the underground parking garage marked on the map. You may see signs saying "parking policy is strictly enforced". No one has been towed yet ;)
Park anywhere. Row F is a good spot. Than take the stairs up and hopefully you'll pop up right next to a beautiful turf field.
From time to time, the fields are closed and we play at Grass Lawn park at 7031 148th Ave NE in Redmond. This will be noted on the site.
Do I have to be a Microsoft employee?
No, the game is open to everyone.
Do I have to RSVP on Pickup Ninja?
Please RSVP. The game relies upon people using the site. It only takes a minute to create an account and RSVP so just do it.
What time do the games start?
We start at 12:45. Try to be on time. Please. There are other players who use the field until 12:45. They are a different group that is more casual. I don't know much else about them.
I don't see any games listed. ¿Qué pasa?
Someone has to call a game. Usually this happens on the day before game day or early the day of. Check the site frequently, or better yet, call a game yourself!
What is the skill level?
The skill level varies from absolute beginners to experienced club players, with most people being somewhere in between.
What should I wear?
Cleats are recommended.
How do I know there will be a game?
Check the site. If there are 10 people signed up by noon, there will definitely be a game. Sometimes we will play mini with fewer.
