Welcome to the Best Little Pickleball Club in Arizona!
Pickleball mania is alive and well in the hills of Arizona. Fountain Hills has six pickleball courts (three lighted) where a fun-loving group gets together three to four times a week (or more!) to play, exercise and improve their pickleball skills. Who says you can’t get the benefit of exercvise and have fun, too?
What is Pickleball?
What is pickleball? Pickleball is a blend of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It can be played indoors or outdoors. The game was developed in the mid-60’s in Washington State and the name is derived from Pickles, the ball-chasing cocker spaniel of one of the sport’s co-inventors.
Pickleball is a great way to meet new people and play a game that is right for a variety of skill levels and ages. It is a fun, easy sport to learn! Come swing a paddle with us and enjoy one of the fastest growing sports in America.
The Town of Fountain Hills Parks and Recreation has partnered with local pickleball enthusiasts to host Adult Open Co-ed pickleball. There is a small membership fee which covers the cost of balls and maintaining the court. No paddle? No problem! Loaners are available to new players.
Our blog is intended primarily for our members to clarify pickleball rules, generate discussion on drills to improve play, or answer questions on club policies. If you are not a member and have a question, submit your question or comment on our contact form and a member of our advisory board will get back with you as soon as possible.
Want to watch the game in action? Grab some popcorn and watch one of our educational videos, created by local club members. They are an excellent way to learn the basics and are entertaining as well! Or come down to the courts and talk to one of our members in person!
The purpose of the Advisory Board is to serve the Fountain Hills Pickleball Club membership by acting as a coordinating group for all activities related to club membership. All members of the Advisory Board serve in a volunteer capacity.
The Advisory Board schedules periodic meetings, as needed, to review and evaluate club activities. Member suggestions are encouraged. If you have a suggestion, contact a member of the committee or send your comments via the contact form.
