The Healthplex is Now Offering Pickleball. Learn More About this Exciting Game by Attending One of Our Open House Events!

Pickleball Program Update as of Nov. 21, 2018

In an effort to get the popular Pickleball sport established here at the Healthplex, we contacted a vendor that provides drop down lines that can be placed over a tennis court. We were told these lines would work for our program but we found out quickly that any contact with the lines created a very disruptive game with the lines needing to be reset after every point.

Therefore, we are putting the Pickleball program on hold immediately. However, we have identified a professional court painter who can paint the lines on the court. It will just take us a few weeks to go through the process and make the proper arrangements to get the lines painted. We will make every effort to move this process along as quickly as possible.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience but we believe the end result will be the type of quality Pickleball program that members are expecting. Stay tuned.

 Thank you for your patience,

 Healthplex Sports Club Management 

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Two or four players (singles or doubles) use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net. Though it is a bit easier to play than tennis, players are sure to get a great workout.
