Pickleball, the fastest growing sport in America, is a paddle sport for all ages and all athletic ability levels. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong and adds its own rules as well. It is played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a net lower than a tennis net. Players use a paddle and a plastic ball with holes to win a game to 11 points. Pickleball can be played as doubles or singles, but 95% of all game play is as doubles.
It has very simple rules and is easy to learn and play. Teenagers love the fun of it in schools and many are flooding into Pickleball tournaments. Seniors love the social aspects and the ability to stay active and fit. Tennis, racquetball, squash and ping pong players love the competitive nature of it.
Drop-in play is every morning (weather permitting), 9 am – 12 noon at Remington Hill Park. Monday through Thursday scheduled drop-in play is 5 pm – dusk. The courts are open throughout the day.
What is “drop-in” play? Drop-in play is not a supervised or organized program, it is just a suggested time that interested players can show up and meet others who want to play, all skill levels are welcome. The Remington Hills pickleball drop-in schedule is the same as other area pickleball courts, so if the courts are full or empty, there are other options on a consistent basis. Participants must provide their own equipment.
Remington Hills Park Courts (1100 S. Cherry Lane, Holmen WI): Two dedicated pickleball courts with permanent in-ground nets and one tennis court. The tennis court has markings for two additional pickleball courts, which would have to use portable nets for pickleball.
