This group for anyone interested in playing pickleball (or wanting to learn) in the Phoenix area.
As the sport continues its growth more and more places to play are becoming available. Phoenix Parks and Rec passed a resolution allowing Pickleball play on 8 outdoor public courts. (Nevitt Park, Dynamite Park, La Pradera Park, Solano Park, Pecos Park, Western Star Park, Telephone Pioneer Park and Encanto Park).
Along with these parks there are several community centers that have indoor play.
The City of Chandler also is allowing pickleball play at the Tumbleweed Recreational Center for indoors and soon a outdoor site will be announced.
The Town of Gilbert has indoor play at Freestone Recreational Center and in 2018 will have built a park with 6 outdoor courts.
Tempe also has two indoor locations, Escalante Recreational Center and North Tempe Multi-generational Center.
We will strive to cover all locations and although some might be a distance to drive for pickleball players, we are sure there is a location near you. Bear with us as we hope to gather our information and see this meetup grow in membership.
The courts are free public access, open to anyone and everyone. Please bring a chair and water. Come anytime and you will rotate in with everyone else. We are also there in the evenings when the sun sets. The courts have lights
