xWhat’s Happening


Ladder leagues have started!  Tuesday nights 6-8p for all comers, Wednesday mornings 10a-12p for ages 50+.  $5 per session ($2.50 for platinum members).  Daily prizes, and a grand prize winner as well.  Ladder leagues work as follows: play one game to 11 with the other 3 players on your court.  Add up your scores.  The top 2 scores move up a court, the bottom 2 move down a court.  Then play again with a new grouping.  We continue play until the 2 hours is up!  Sign up via the Court Reserve app or call/email us.

We will be introducing additional leagues over the next couple of weeks in October – more details to come.


Improve your game in a fun group setting. 

Start Up Boot Camps – A 2 hour session that will give you all the tools you need to play.  You’ll leave knowing the rules, how to keep score, and the paddle skills necessary to play right away!

Do you already have a pickleball instructor?  We think you’ll love The Summit’s instructors, but there are other great coaches in the area too!  If you’d like lessons from an outside instructor at The Summit, get in touch with us!  We want to see pickleball grow in the area, and are happy to make arrangements.
