Pickleball: It’s one of the fastest growing sports in the United States, and it’s arrived at CPAC.

Take a short tennis court or badminton court, add an oversized, squared-off ping pong paddle and a wiffle ball, and you’ve got pickleball. A game born in the 1970s to entertain bored kids on summer vacation, pickleball combines the elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It can be played at any age and skill level, and as doubles or singles.

Permanent Court Time:

Permanent court time is available for the full Pickleball season from Monday, 10/2/22 thru Sunday, 5/28/23. Limited time slots available at both CPAC East and CPAC West.
