Pickleball 

pickleballWith a rapidly growing interest for pickleball in Piedmont, the Piedmont Recreation Department has established a program providing stable locations to play and offers clinics in learning the game to allow for natural growth in player population.

The City has partnered with Piedmont Unified School District (PUSD) to renovate the Physical Education hardcourt surfaces at Piedmont Middle School to create a pickleball facility that is open to the community during non-school hours. In addition to the middle school courts, pickleball is offered at these times and locations:

  • Saturday at Piedmont Middle School from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Schedule subject to change. Please call the Recreation Department at (510) 420-3070 for updated schedule. 

Helpful Tips

  • Always yell “Ball on” if a ball enters your court or you hit into another court. Stop play and return the ball.

  • Wear shoes designed for tennis. Bring hat/cap, sunblock and water.

  • Only use paddles on the approved list and the City supplied Onix type balls. Nomex and Fiberglass paddles are not approved.  Loaner paddles are provided.

  • Piedmont staff will set up/tear down nets and player help is welcome.

  • Please use the limited bench space for sitting.
