What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S. Combining elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong, the game is easy to learn for beginners and can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Currently the sport is most popular with the senior population, but the game is also being introduced in physical eduation classes in middle and high schools. 

Where Can I Play?

The tennis courts at Bevelhymer Park have been recently resurfaced and Pickleball lines have been implemented. The dimensions of a Pickleball court are smaller than a tennis court, therefore 4 Pickleball courts are open for play at the park.


Pickleball is played with a paddle (smaller than a tennis racquet, but larger than a ping pong paddle). Paddles are made from wood or compostie materials including aluminum and graphite. Players will also need a net system and Pickleball balls. Beginners that want to start playing the game can rent equipment from the Parks office, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm. Players will need to leave a credit card and photo ID with the office to check out the equipment. Please call the office for more details at 614-939-7275.

Once you fall in love with the game and want to purchase your own equipment, you can receive a 5% discount through our preferred vendor by emailing bsmith@naparks.org
