Pickleball Rec Players 2018 Donner Pickleball Drone May 2018


Pickleball Programs & Court Times

Columbus Parks & Recreation Department has two Pickleball Courts which are located at Donner Park on Sycamore and 17th Street. Pickleball is a paddle sport created 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.

Columbus Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Columbus are very fortunate to have a great partnership with the Columbus Pickleball Club who has helped us to grow the sport of Pickleball in our community. Most of the action you see at the courts is a result of the camaraderie and efforts of the club! They assist our department by hosting clinics, organizing play times, hosting tournaments and a variety of other Pickleball related events. If you are interested in learning more about the club or Pickleball in general, we recommend you visit their Facebook page  or email the club for additional information.
