About Us

Pickleball is America’s fastest growing sport and combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It is played both indoor and outdoors on a badminton size court (1/3 the size of a tennis court) and uses a slightly lower net. Players use light paddles made of graphite or polymer and a 2.75″ plastic whiffle ball. The ball is served underhand.

Basic Pickleball skills are easy to learn whether you are ten, eighty-five or somewhere in between, but the game gives all players the scope to develop their skills and reach high levels of performance.

Come and join the fun and get a good cardio work out and improved hand-eye coordination. Your questions are welcomed!

Pickleball: silly name, serious fun!!

    Just to confirm, this updated pickleball schedule for the Kroc Center show NO evening hours being allotted. Is that correct, No evening Pickleball at Kroc Center at this time?

    Unfortunately, Pickleball at Fairhaven church has been canceled until further notice. Probably will not be back in 2021. Please remove Fairhaven church from the places to play list. Thank you.

    My wife and I are interested in learning to play pickle ball and joining an organization or club. It would be appreciated if someone would contact us. I am 68 and my wife is 69.

    Thanks – Gary and Judy DeMarco

    I am looking for a facility to take pickleball lessons near me. I have played but I would still be classified as a beginner in my eyes.
