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.  

Start playing with us anytime at one of our drop In locations listed below. Check out the calendar for upcoming leagues and tournaments.
