Are you looking for a fun racquet sport to play at Fountain of the Sun Community?

Pickleball is played similar to tennis, except it is played on a smaller court with two to four players who use oversized ping pong-like paddles and a perforated plastic ball. If you have never played the game before, the FOS Pickleball Club (FOSPC) can get you started with lessons (seasonal), and the FOS Pickleball League can help you meet other pickleball enthusiasts to play with throughout the week.

FOS Pickleball Court

The court is located on the south side of the FOS Activity Center. Open play times are from 7:00 AM until 10:00 PM.  During the winter league season, the times reserved for league play take precedence over individual reservations for play times. Check the reservation sheets by the court to reserve your play time in hour-long increments by writing your name in one of the open time slots on the log next to the court. If names have a "+" behind them, that means that you can rotate into that play time by placing your paddle on the rack next to the court.

Paddles and balls are free for your use at the court. The paddles and an official Pickleball rule book are inside the plastic container by the court.
