Questions on Pickleball?


What is Pickleball?

A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.  Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.  Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.  Played as doubles or singles. Watch a Video Click Here


What are the Basic Rules?

We encourage players to visit Pickleball Canada for the most current rules or the USAPA.  A very brief version can be found here.


What Equipment Do I Need?

Court Shoes, and a Pickleball Paddle.  Wearing proper footwear is a must.

No Bare Feet!

We highly recommend that you purchase a pair of outdoor tennis or outdoor court shoes.  If you're lucky you will find "Pickleball Shoes".

For indoor play, volleyball, or badminton shoes work great if Pickleball Shoes are not on the shelf.

If you don't own a Paddle the club has a few paddles available for you to give it a try.
