Try Pickleball Today

Pickleball is a fun game that’s rising in popularity, so we brought it to the J! This game is a lot like tennis, both sports use a racket or paddle to hit the ball over a net. However, pickleball is considered the less strenuous and less intense version of the two. It is a combination of several classic games – badminton, tennis, and table tennis.

Available Pickleball Play Times:
Thursdays: 1:00-4:00 PM
Saturdays: 9:00am-12:00 PM


Feel free to bring your own pickleball equipment, although equipment will also be provided on-site. An electronic punch card system will be used. Punch cards are non-refundable but can be carried over for future use.
