A cross between tennis, ping pong and badminton, this game is played with a solid paddle and a whiffle ball. The game is played most often in a doubles format. The net is lower than tennis and the court is also smaller than tennis, so minimal running is required. Pickleball delivers a fun experience for both social and competitive players!


Eight marked pickleball courts are available at the Recreation Center. Bring your own paddle or check out a paddle from the customer service desk (an ID is required for check out and equipment is limited).


Pickleball courts are available for Open Court play Monday-Friday, 5:30A to 2:00P. Games are organized based upon the arrival of players.

Sundays, April 2 to May 28, 10:00A-2:00P - Family Pickleball Fun  (kids attend with adult)         Sundays, April 2 to May 28, 2:00P-7:00P - Open Court Play 

Wednesday, April 5 to May 31, 7:00P-10:00P - Open Court Play



The game is played to eleven points and a team must win by two points. Both players on the serving team are allowed to serve. Points are scored only when serving. The serve must be hit underhanded and each team must play their first shot off the bounce.


Lessons are held the first Monday and Tuesday of every month from 9:00A to 10:30A through March and are included with your membership or $5 Daily Pass. After the lesson, players can stay and play on any of the available Pickleball courts until the end of play time for that particular day. Starting in April, lessons are the first Monday from 9:00A to 10:30A and the first Wednesday from 7:00P to 8:30P.

Non-members may purchase a Day Pass for $5, which includes access to scheduled Open Court times as well as use of the fitness equipment and walking track. Locker rooms with showers available on the first floor near the pickleball courts.
