Open to all players who have learned the basics of the game, both member and non-member. Enjoy the opportunity to meet new players, renew acquaintances and improve your game. Open play is managed by the Tennis & Pickleball Center staff and organized by skill level (links explaining skill levels can be viewed on the Open Play Schedule or in the FAQs below)
To join the notification group, text 'dinkme' to 84483. Tennis & Pickleball Center staff will notify everyone in the group of bad weather conditions which may result in having to cancel a session or (if possible) relocate play indoors.
Fees are for a 2-hour session.
Players may not split sessions.
Members fees: $6 per 2-hour session
Non-members: $10 per 2-hour session
Avoid crossing active play on any court. If your group finishes play on an inner court, ask the group in the outer court to slide over which allows the new players easy access to an outer court without disturbing others. Use the gates on the outer perimeter to access outer courts whenever possible.
ALWAYS remove stray pickleballs from the court area to avoid accidents. Pockets are good places for them.
If you have learned the basics or play elsewhere and are visiting, improve your skills in open play. Join in a skill group that meets your comfort level. If you are consistently playing better or worse than others in the group, consider moving to a different skill level. Place your paddles in one of the racks (casual or competitive) in sequence to play in the next available court. Players wanting to play together should stack their paddles in one pile.
Parking is available onsite at the Tennis & Pickleball Center or in the Meadows parking lot to the north (closest to the outdoor pickleball courts). The Meadows lot is preferable when there are simultaneous sports events in the ball fields next to the Tennis Center.
