What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, with 26-40 round holes, over a net.
It was created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

There are pickleball lines painted on tennis courts #5 and #6 and we now have 4 Pickleball courts ready and waiting for you! These courts may be reserved using the tennis reservation link. The nets, balls and and a few paddles are available for use and are stored in a storage container courtside. All borrowed items need to be returned to the storage container after use.
