Meet the PR Pickleball Club
Paso Robles Pickleball Club is an Activity for Paso Robles Parks and Recreation at Centennial Park in Paso Robles. The club started in 2010 and since then has grown to over 150 adult (18+) members on five permanent courts.
You don't need a partner or balls or even a paddle (we have some loaners), but good tennis shoes are a must. Visitors each register and pay $3 per day at Gate 2. See how to be a full member below.
So what is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are fairly simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It is now going Pro across the country.
It combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. It is played with solid paddles and a plastic ball with holes. Most often it is played as doubles. Pickleball is said to be the fastest growing sport in America.
The history of Pickleball starting in 1965 in Washington state can be seen at: USA Pickleball.
Periodically the club puts on clinics to improve your game. All members will be notified. Prices vary.
It is very important to wear appropriate court (tennis) shoes. The correct shoes are non-marking and have cross-hatched (herring bone) tread designed to help players more easily move sideways as well as forward and backward. Running or cross-training shoes are not recommended and can even be dangerous to the wearer.
