OUTDOOR* PICKLEBALL

Adults, All Levels Welcome

Join us for one of the fastest growing sports in the nation, Pickleball.  This fun and social game is described as a combination of ping-pong, tennis, and badminton. Played on a small court with a low net, it uses whiffle balls and paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast paced, competitive game for experienced players.  Pickleball is FUN.  Stay active with us, it is a great work out. We typically play doubles, 6 players to a court, splitting and rotating after wins.

*We hope to move back indoors to the Community Center as soon as it’s permitted and safer.

Max 12 reservations per day. Outdoor Pickleball is by reservation only! Click here to make a reservation (maximum 3 days at a time). Note: Your reservation is for one spot on a court, with 3-5 other players, not for the entire court.

Dates/Time:  Tuesdays 11:00AM-1:00; Thursdays 10:00AM-12:00PM

Rain-Outs: Check your email for cancellations an hour before pickleball if weather’s looking uncertain.

Cost: $3 per day, exact change paid at check-in. Those who have the old punch cards may use them: 2 outdoor visits = 1 punch on old card.

Location:  South Whidbey Sports Complex (soccer fields) at 5598 Langley Rd, Langley. The courts are painted in the SW parking lot. MAP
