Pickleball League

Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation, in collaboration with Council Bluffs Area Pickleball, is offering adult pickleball doubles leagues. Games are played in Council Bluffs at the Iowa West Field House (5 Arena Way). Participants 10 years old and up are eligible.

Pickleball is a paddle sport played using a plastic ball with holes. The game combines fundamentals of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton and can be played as doubles or singles. Pickleball is played on indoor or outdoor courts measuring one-fourth the size of a standard tennis court with a lower net.

Pickleball is a friendly game with simple rules making it an ideal sport for people of all ages. While the game is social, more experience equates to a more fast-paced, challenging, competitive match.
