Pickleball

Pickleball has become one of the most popular, rapidly growing sports in Esplanade with over 250 members currently participating in our many  activities. Rarely is there a day or evening when there isn't some kind of vigorous play taking place on the courts.

The schedule includes Men's, Women's and Couples social groups as well as numerous opportunities for just showing up and getting into a game by ability level! Traditionally Sunday mornings at Esplanade includes "Social Open Play" where residents mix with players at all levels to meet and make new friends

Pickleball socials are a way for members to meet and mingle. Residents share food and drink - playing or just socializing, while special events include the annual Esplanade resident tournament and fundraisers for worthy causes.

Our Pickleball Pro, Scott Tingley is here to provide some of the best instruction around for players at all levels.

Come check us out!
