Indoor Open Play lasts for 2 hours and costs $8 for members.

Outdoor courts are free to use during the daytime by our members without a reservation if a court is available. If you would prefer to reserve an outdoor court in advance, it is $10/hour.

Private Lessons

“Open Play” is a regularly scheduled, organized event where players can show up to play without a partner. Players rotate in and out to mix/match with others of similar skill levels, creating a fun, dynamic, and social environment. “Open Play” sessions are scheduled daily to give players a chance to meet other players. If you do not want to play with different partners throughout the evening, and prefer to stay with your group, you should reserve a court instead. The term “Open Play” implies no reservation required, however we definitely recommend pre-registering, to make sure you get a spot as space in each Open Play is limited.

Book Your Spot

Our Pickleball 1-0-1 Clinic is the perfect class to learn the basics of the game. In this clinic you will get 2 hours of instruction, giving you all the basics you need to play your first match. The instructor will cover equipment, basic pickleball terminology, score keeping, court position, and the fundamentals of serve, return and volley. This class will prepare you for the next step class, Pickleball 1-0-2.

Private Events Form

Our facility is designed to host regular tournaments in varying formats. Our pickleball courts were made in accordance with USAPA sanctioned tournament guidelines. These tournaments are skill level tournaments. We also host tournaments that are put on by outside companies.

In order to be respectful of our pro’s time and also allow people on a wait list for an event to have a chance to join, The Pickleball Playground has a strict 12-hour cancellation policy. If a booking is cancelled before the 12-hour deadline, you will be issued a refund in the form of Club Credit. Club Credit can be used to book another reservation for another day.

If you have an outdoor court reservation, clinic or lesson and it rains, we will automatically process a rain out in our system. This will issue a refund in the form of Club Credit. Club Credit can be used to book another reservation for another day.

We have a few options for individuals looking to get out and have some FUN on the court without feeling the competitive pressure. League Night, Friday Night Glow in the Dark Event, and Saturday Night Mixer are just a few ways to enjoy playing with your friends. We also offer Open Play for various skill levels so you can find which one feels right for you.

Open Play
