Pickleball

One of the fastest-growing sports in America. Pickleball is a racket sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffleball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.

Pickleball Group Play
Members and Guests are welcome. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday on the courts starting at 9:00am. We have an active group of members that play regularly these days and they have been known to keep a few extra supplies for those interested in playing or learning how to play the game. The Wellness Center also has racket rentals available for members and guests. Rentals are $3 per racket. However, if a guest pays $5 to play in the round-robin, then the rental is free. You will need to present your valid POA Card or RB Guest Card at the time of play.
