What is Pickleball?

A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet. In pickleball, the same court is used for both singles and doubles play. The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle. The court is striped similar to a tennis court with right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (referred to as the "kitchen").

How do you play?

Download the official USAPA rules summary here (PDF). We also provide hard copies of the rules in the Recreation Center.

When do the courts open? Are they open to everyone?

The dedicated pickleball courts are public courts which means they are first come, first serve.  Similar to our parks and tennis courts, the pickleball courts open from dawn to dusk. Public restrooms are located in the Recreation Center located across the main parking lot.

What are the pickleball court rules?

To view pickleball court etiquette and conduct policy, download the rules here (PDF). They are also posted on the exterior and interior of the courts.

Will you offer classes?

The Foster City Parks and Recreation Department is currently working on a pickleball program.  We expect to offer classes and clinics in Fall 2017.
