Pickleball

  1. Courts at Mattie Stepanek Park are closed for repairs and are expected to reopen by June 9, depending on the weather.

In a cross between tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, pickleball players use an oversized paddle to hit a wiffleball across a badminton-sized court in singles or doubles play. The game was invented in 1965. 

Rockville currently has two designated pickleball courts and multiple tennis courts with pickleball lines for drop-in play at our public parks and community centers. We also offer a variety of pickleball classes and leagues throughout the year.
