Pickleball

We are excited to announce that the installation of the permanent shade structure at the outdoor pickleball courts of the Parker Recreation Center will begin Monday, Oct. 3. The courts will be closed during construction; tentatively one to four weeks. It is our goal to have the courts available promptly, while taking into account possible contractor, utility and weather delays. The timing for this project has been dependent upon lengthy product back orders and contractor availability, but we are thrilled to be able to provide this shade amenity as soon as possible. Please check back here for official news and we will provide updates on this project as they become available. Thank you for your understanding.      

Indoor drop-in pickleball is currently available at the Parker Fieldhouse, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Pickleball is a racquet sport combining badminton, tennis and table tennis. The sport is played on a smaller court with a net that’s just a bit lower than tennis using a hard paddle and a whiffle ball. It is accessible to a wide range of players and athletic abilities due to the court size and speed of play. If you haven’t played before, we’ll teach you! If you have played, we’ll provide good competition!

Structured play creates 1.5 hour time blocks for players in specific but similar skill ratings. We use Self-Ratings for all Pickleball programs and play. See below. Plan to play at your assigned rating and assigned time(s) only. If a group requests players play up to create an even number of players, they may stay. However, play is intentionally divided by skill level to create balanced play at ALL skill levels. 

Round Robin play is determined by the number of players who arrive to play on any given day. Sign in on the provided whiteboard when you arrive and use the number you signed in as for the Round Robin scheduling. Round Robin schedules are provided on-site; click here for examples.
