Pickleball – Open

PickleBall has the combined features of badminton, tennis and ping pong, but also has its own unique features as well. The ball is plastic and contains several small holes, much like a wiffle ball. Anyone can play Pickleball as players come in all ages. You don’t have to be strong, quick, tall or overly athletic to play, just able to keep the ball in play and have fun.

Open Pickleball is for players of all levels. If the courts are full and people are waiting to play, players need to rotate in and out so everyone can play. For example, there is only one court (two nets) available on Wednesday nights. Games should be played to 15. If people are waiting players will need to exit the court at the end of their game so others can play. There is a maximum of two games played in a row if people are waiting – moving from one net to the other. This rule is in place so everyone can play somewhat equally.

During Open Pickleball times listed below, generally doubles is played. Court 4 is available for Pickleball play from open to 3 p.m. on weekdays and any night after 9 p.m.

Open Pickleball is not available during off days at Sun Prairie HS and special events. Like other sports on the basketball courts (badminton, playing catch with a baseball or football, etc.) setting up a Pickleball net is at the manager’s discretion at all times. Days off for the 2022-23 SPHS school year are at the bottom of this page.
