Pickleball is a fun paddle sport, designed for all ages and skill levels. With simple rules and elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong, the game is easy for beginners but quick and competitive for more experienced players. The game can be played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. There are six courts at Cresthaven Park and four courts at South Shores Park. During the winter months, courts are available at the DISC for open play.
