Pickleball

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!

PICKLEBALL LADDER LEAGUES

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

PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENTS

Livonia Parks and Recreation will be hosting outdoor pickleball tournaments throughout the year. All tournaments are non-sanctioned and self-scored. All tournaments will run at Bicentennial Park Pickleball Courts 1-6 and teams are guaranteed a minimum of five games. Games are played to 11 points with no need to win by two points. 

All tournaments cost $30 per team, and each team must have at least one person who is 18 years of age participating in the tournament. Only one person per team needs to register, and the individual registering must be at least 18 years of age. The second participant must be at least 14 years of age to participate in any tournament. 

Information on the 2024 tournament dates will be posted in February.
