Four people standing at a pickle ball net


Don’t fall into your opponents “kitchen”!  Pickleball is truly a game for all ages, shapes and skill levels.  Pickleball is a combination of badminton, ping-pong and tennis.  Players use a paddle that is reminiscent of ping-pong paddles, but is bigger and usually made of more advanced materials. The ball used is very similar to a plastic whiffle ball with holes covering the surface. Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles, just like tennis.  Come give it a try on our new pickleball courts – it will be a smash!
