Pickleball - Open Play Register View Cart

Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffleball.

In our OPEN PLAY programs players are required to play with all skill levels and not cut in the paddle line.

This program is for players who have played or have a complete understanding of rules and the sport.
