Rain-Out Update: Tuesday, October 26th – Pickleball canceled due to wet court conditions.

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, 4-6 players to a court, splitting and rotating after wins.

Max 18 players per day. Players must join our Pickleball Roster in advance of coming to play. First come, first served.

Dates/Time: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays – if it’s dry enough, we’ll play! 10:30am – 12:30pm Click here to join our roster once, then drop-in to play when you choose!

First come, first served, max 18.

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