KNOXVILLE PICKLEBALL

Pickleball is America's fastest growing sport and specifically is a mixture of tennis, badminton, and ping pong.  It's fast, fun, and exciting and is VERY popular in groups of aging citizens! However, Pickleball is fun for people of all ages and no experience is necessary to play! So, join in the fun and learn something new with Pickleball! Equipment is available to use at Rec Centers.  No experience required.

INDOOR OPEN PICKLEBALL OFFERINGS

Knoxville Parks & Recreation is committed to the growth and development of pickleball and the local pickleball community with open play opportunities as well as more competitive offerings, such as tournaments and leagues.  Did you know that since the fall of 2013 (when we began offering pickleball at one recreation center) we have increased our pickleball offerings to 21 indoor pickleball courts at 9 rec centers and 10 outdoor pickleball courts at 2 parks?  Therefore, in order to support the future growth  and need of the game of pickleball in our City, there will be a nominal fee to play pickleball during indoor play at recreation center beginning May 30, 2017.  We are currently researching "frequent player passes" and hope to have more information in the coming weeks.


CURRENT OFFERINGS - FALL 2019 - September 3 to October 25, 2019
