Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the US by no coincidence! This fun, dynamic paddle sport is easy to learn and allows players to work on balance, agility, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination in a low-impact, fast-paced environment. We offer instructional programs and events for all ages in Tucson on our three pickleball courts located at our state-of-the-art Sarver Tennis Center.
