Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. It is played on a badminton-sized court with a paddle and a plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball). It’s easy to learn and good exercise. Give it a try!



Livonia Parks and Recreation is excited to offer intro to pickleball clinics for ages 10 and up! 

Adult clinics will be taught on Friday nights in MAC 2 at either 5:45 p.m. or 7:15 p.m. running for 75 minutes weekly. Youth Clinics will run on Saturday afternoons in MAC 2 for 90 minutes across four weeks. No classes on Nov. 24 or 25 for Fall II 2023.

Livonia Parks and Recreation offers two nights of ladder league indoor play at the Kirksey Recreation Center. Basic knowledge of pickleball rules is expected in addition to participants bringing their own paddles. Balls will be provided. 

Players will provide their rating at the time of registration which will be used to schedule the first night of games. Participants will sign up as an individual and play four rounds of doubles each night with a different partner each game. Depending upon the total number of points accumulated each week, participants can move up and down the ladder each week with leagues running for seven weeks.

If a participant cannot attend a week, they are responsible for finding a substitute player to replace them
