Pickleball

The City offers pickleball drop-in programs at a variety of locations. Pickleball is a ‘tennis-like' racket game played with two or four people on a badminton sized court. The paddles used are light-weight and solid, used to hit a large hollow plastic ball. It can be easy enough for anybody to play and will provide a good workout for those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 
Pickleball is not offered on statutory holidays and the schedules below may change for school holidays including; P.D.Days., March Break and winter break.
