Pickellball Courts!

Pickleball continues to grow in popularity and access.

Act like a true local and hit the Pickleball  courts in St. George. The fast-paced game is a cross of whiffle ball and  badminton and great for the old and young.

Watch a demonstration of the game on the USA  Pickleball Association’s website, pick up some equipment and get outside.

We have several courts in the St. George area with the closest to Best Western Coral Hills only four blocks away at the Vernon Worthen Park.

The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer smaller version of a wiffle ball.

Pickleball is similar to tennis, but with differences. A pickleball ball typically moves at one-third of the average speed of a tennis ball and the court is just under one-third of the total area of a tennis court.
