Paddle & Pickleball

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America right now. With elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong this fast paced game is quick to pick up!

Platform Tennis — usually referred to as Paddle Tennis — is a low impact racquet sport which is played outdoors primarily during the fall, winter, and early spring.

MRSC has three paddle courts with lights and heaters underneath to melt off snow and ice available year round for Pickleball and Paddle Tennis. After a spirited game of paddle or pickleball, players can socialize in the warmth of our lounge which overlooks the courts.

We have a men’s doubles league for advanced players on Thursday nights or you may also form your own group and book a season court for the same time each week.

Balls are supplied by the club for season courts and leagues. Open court time is available for members and non-members. Call the Club to get involved!
