Pickleball at Techny Prairie Activity Center

Pickleball is a newer sport that combines elements from badminton, tennis and wiffleball. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer smaller version of a wiffleball. Drop-in with your paddle during select times and enjoy the game! We also offer outdoor courts at a few of our parks where patrons are encouraged to drop in and play.
