Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is a Joola Ben Johns Hyperion Premium Pickleball Paddle.  I know, it’s a big ask since it retails for $220!  I really think it will help my game, or maybe I’ll even give it to a friend.   Wait, I have one more ask:  I want to help our local Golden Harvest Food Bank!

Come on out, join the fun, and support a good cause!  Thank you, Tanya Hoffman, for organizing the event again this year.

Our goal is to encourage sportsmanship and camaraderie through fun and exercise by playing the exciting and addictive sport of pickleball.

The game is easy to learn and really fun to play. It can be played on a variety of levels from casual to very competitive.  Pickleball offers players of all ages a good physical workout and the opportunity to meet a diverse group of people who share the passion that surrounds this exciting sport.

We play at the Odell Weeks and Smith-Hazel Recreation Centers and the Gregg Park Civic Center.  Odell Weeks and Gregg Park both have six indoor courts.  Smith-Hazel has three indoor courts.  Go to the "Calendar" tab on the main menu for our current playing schedule.  In addition, we have eight purpose-built pickleball courts located outside behind Odell Weeks.  These public lighted courts are available year round.

General guidelines 

In order to provide the best possible playing experience for everyone, the Pickledillys operate under a set of guidelines. Normally we have three types of play spread throughout the available times each day.  These include drop-in play with all levels mixing together, drop-in play with courts designated by skill level, and court reservation play.  When courts are designated by skill level, we have different schematics (weekday mornings, weekday evenings, and weekends) based on the court usage for different skill levels during those times.  These designations are periodically reviewed and adjusted.   

All players who participate in drop-in play by skill levels need to be rated by the committee.  Visitors may play for a brief period at the level the player representatives feel is appropriate.  Players who are visiting for a longer term and who have a rating at another location should check with the player representatives at that level to determine if that rating is acceptable for our local system.

Guidelines for reserving courts via Sign-up Genius are available at the "Sign-ups" tab
