Come participate in this fun and growing sport here in the Gunnison Valley. Pickleball is a sport similar to badminton and tennis. It is played on a court with similar dimensions to a badminton court, with a wooden paddle. This is a great program for exercise, fun, and hand-eye coordination.
To ensure that every player has a fun and rewarding experience, please respect the established times for all skill levels. Players decide when and with whom they want to warm up, play, practice, drill, teach, learn, etc. by sharing the courts.
