Pickleball (18 and older)

Men and women holding pickleball paddles.

Funny name, addictive game! Pickleball is a fun and competitive sport that is a mash up of tennis, ping pong, wiffle ball, and badminton. The rules and style of the game are similar to tennis. The court is sized like badminton. The paddles used are somewhat like a ping pong paddle and the ball looks like a wiffle ball. It’s one of the fastest growing sports in America and has caught like wildfire across the KC Metro.  

Call 913-826-2975 for additional pickleball questions. 

Cancellation Policy: Within seven days of lesson/class, cancellations are nonrefundable.

Updates to Meadowbrook Park Pickleball Courts

Beginning May 10, the pickleball courts at Meadowbrook Park will operate under a court rotation system.  Paddle stacking holder and court rotation instructions, also listed below, can be found on the west side of the court fence.  

Meadowbrook Park Pickleball Court Rotation rules beginning May 10:

  • Waiting players place paddles in first available open slot.  The sliding marker indicates what group is up next, working left to right.
  • When a game is complete, the next players waiting will rotate onto the court.  
  • When players grab their paddles, they move the marker to the right indicating the next group up.
  • Once the marker has reached the end of the line, move it back to the far left.
  • If players wish to continue to play, they place their paddles at the end of the line.
  • Only one paddle may reserve the space per player.
  • Waiting players continue to move up the line as players come off the court.
  • Games are to be played to a score of 11.  If the courts and the paddle racks are full, reduce the game score to 9.
  • Games limited to 20 minutes, regardless of the score, when players are waiting.
