Pickleball is now offered here at FCTC!
What is Pickleball?
A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. Played as doubles or singles.
Times Pickleball is offered:
Monday – Friday 12 noon – 4pm. Please call in advance for a reserved time.
Weekends after 1pm (and subject to league match play – also note that on the weekends you will need to set up the court yourself as we do not have the staff to assist during these times)
We are proposing Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2pm as a set time for people to come and gather to play together and learn together about the game!
Why the restricted times & notice?
Although Pickleball is a very fun and a great new spot… the ball makes a “different” (and louder) noise than tennis… to avoid annoying any tennis players we are only offering Pickleball during “off” hours when there are hardly any tennis players out on the courts.
Please note that since we do need to set up the courts for those playing Pickleball – we do need at least a 2 hour notice (or you may need to set the court up yourself).
