Pickleball Lessons and Open Play

Wondering what it's all about? Looking for exercise with a big dose of fun? Pickleball, part tennis, part ping-pong, and part badminton, is one of the fastest growing sports today. Pickleball is played on a badminton size court with a lowered net. It is played with a perforated plastic ball, similar to a whiffle ball, and wood or composite paddles. The game is easy to learn and requires little athletic ability. You can play at a slow level, or at a highly competitive level. Please contact the park office for current lesson dates and times.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., courts are set up for open play - on the pickleball-lined tennis courts - come out and join the fun! 

Pickleball nets are available for use other days and times through the park office at no charge to Wrightsville Beach Residents, and $5/day or $10/weekend for Non-Residents.
