Fun times, good friends, and exercise – a nice combination! We would love to have you join the Pickleball Club.

Pickleball (sometimes spelled Pickle-Ball) is a paddleball sport (similar to a racket sport) that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, much like a whiffle ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports: the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications.

You do not have to be a member to enjoy the Pickleball courts. The courts are open to all Apache Wells residents and their guests. Starting in mid-November a weekly schedule is posted on the board located between the courts.

Apache Wells uses a “paddles up” format for open play. Players place their paddles in the tube next to any court and as a game finishes, the next players take the court and the rotation continues.

Fees: $20/year (for consumable supplies, tournament prizes and group gatherings)

Be sure to wear court shoes and we will see you on the courts!
