Meet the PR Pickleball Club
Paso Robles Pickleball Club started in 2010 on temporary courts that were once a roller hockey arena that was part of Centennial Park. Since that time it has grown to over 100 adult (18+) members on 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. The club is under the auspices of PR Parks and recreation as an activity for adults for which one needs to register.
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.

Play has resumed with social distancing. Join us for all the fun on Mondays through Saturdays from 8:00 AM (7:30 AM in summer) to 11:30 AM.
Daily Fee: $3.00 paid at the gate for visitors.
Membership: $10 per month paid every 6 months online at Paso Robles Recreation. Dept.

So what is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are 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 a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes and most often played as doubles. Pickleball is 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.
This a great game for all ages. You meet friendly people and get great exercise.
This sport is "addicting."
