Open play format with a suggested $ 1 donation at entry to play. Balls and nets are provided. Paddles can be borrowed as well, yet most bring their own paddle.

Pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis into one exciting sport that is fun for teenagers and adults of all ages. The game is played on a badminton-sized court, indoors or outdoors, with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center to promote an ease of play, and players use hard paddles to volley a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball).  This is a sport you really must try!

So, come join in the action and RELISH the game!  Don't dilly-dally, come join us!
