Easy to learn regardless of age, pickleball places an emphasis on coordination, control, patience and strategy rather than strength or speed. This game can also be a valuable development aid in hand-eye coordination, exercise and gross motor skill training making it a great sport for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. We have 9 courts at the Rustad Recreation Center, 601 26th Ave. E.

*Hours and dates subject to change without notice. Open Pickleball hours are listed on the Rustad Recreation Center schedule, located below.

WFPD has lower, middle and upper divisions for LEAGUE PLAY not in our weekend tournaments (weekend tournaments are A-D divisions).

We are trying to start an upper division league this year (2022-2023) and it will consist of A & B division teams.
