Pickleball is similar to badminton and tennis. It involves playing on a court with the same dimensions as a badminton court with a hard paddle and perforated, plastic ball (whiffle ball). It takes very little instruction with most people able to play a regular game on their first day.  Drop in fee: $1. Note: There will be no Pickleball on October 23, November 26, 27 December 24, 25 and January 1. Other days may occasionally be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.

  • Played indoors or outdoors
  • Badminton-sized court, with net lowered to 34 inches
  • Played with perforated plastic ball (like whiffle ball)
  • Wood or composite paddle twice the size of a ping pong paddle
  • Easy to learn, but can become fast-paced, competitive game
