Two People Playing PickleballPickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. It is played on a badminton size 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 will be hosting pickleball tournaments throughout the year. All tournaments are non-sanctioned tournaments and self-scored. 


Come participate in the first indoor pickleball tournament hosted by Livonia Parks and Recreation! This tournament is only offering a coed division and is open to all ages and ratings. 

Each team is guaranteed five games with the opportunity to qualify for the playoff bracket. Only one person per team needs to register for the tournament. 

  • Date: Sunday, Jan. 16
  • Location: Kirksey Recreation Center MAC Gym 2 
  • Event Time: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.   

pickleball ladder leagues

Livonia Parks and Recreation is excited to announce we will be offering ladder leagues both indoors at the Kirksey Recreation Center starting in January and outdoors starting in the spring. Participants are encouraged to bring their own paddle. 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 three games of doubles each night with a different partner each game. Depending upon the total number of points accumulated each week, participants will have the chance to move up and down the ladder each week. Leagues will run for six weeks.
