There are many regulars at many venues around our area.
Rockwood Park’s Pickleball Center west of Richmond There are 8 very well marked courts with separating fences (minimum ball chasing) and lights for evening play. Its a nirvana of pickleball and only 1 to 1.5 hrs away (depending upon traffic and where you live). Four of us went there last Thursday and were made to feel very welcome. There were about 40 players (court capacity 32) so a little waiting and a good range of players including some who are highly competitive tournament players. The quality of play was fantastic. Pickleball is occurring there almost all the time. but as we approach the warmer weather they will have periods blocked for lessons and league play
