*The tennis courts will be resurfaced in mid-June and will be closed for approximately 3 weeks. At that time, a Pickle Ball court will also be added!
Pickle Ball is played on a badminton-sized court of 20' x 44'. The ball is served diagonally, with points scored by the side that serves. Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net to prevent spiking. The server continues to alternate service courts until he or she faults. The first side to score 11 points -- and with a lead of at least two points -- wins. Pickle ball can be played with singles or doubles.
