Pickleball Courts

Pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. It is played on a court similar to a doubles badminton court. There is a net mounted two inches lower than in tennis. The game is played with a wooden paddle and a wiffle ball. Pickleball is a great sport for all ages, and easy to learn. Play is first come, first served.
City parks are open, as of May 22, 2020, dog parks, skate parks and tennis/pickleball courts are open. Additional park amenities, as outlined in our FAQ, remain closed at this time.

CDC guidelines for social distancing, limiting groups to 10 or less, handwashing, and other protective measures should continue to be followed.
