What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a fun sport for all ages. This popular activity is played on a modified tennis court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball) and composite or wooden paddle. It is easy for beginners to learn, and can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

Organized Drop-In Play

Everyone is welcome but first-time players must participate in a Beginner Pickleball Clinic before participating in drop-in play. Players will rotate into different games with others. Please use the paddle boxes to secure your place in the rotation. When a game is finished, two winners stay on and split up, while the next two waiting players go onto the court. When more than four players are waiting, rotation will be four players off and four new players on. Registration is not required but all players must check in at the pro shop, even membership pass holders.
