Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but has become one of America's most popular growing sports among all ages.


Admission is $4 per person or purchase a punch card for $25 (a $30 value). Sign-in and pay admissions at the information desk next to the ice arena. Bring your own paddle or we do have a few wooden paddles on-hand you may borrow. Graphite paddles available for rent for $2.
