New Indoor Courts in St George!

Had a chance to play this morning at St George's new indoor pickleball facility. It is a winner! 4 well painted courts with concrete surface. They "boys" were all there Don Odle,Bill Dysert, Steve Hafen, Scott Lindsey and honorary "Boy" Mary Lynn Larson.

We had some good games and I noticed right away how well your eyes picked up the ball. Also the courts are painted Red and Blue with White stripes which makes line calls very easy.

I have a good feeling about this place. The owner is very nice and open to any ideas we bring him. We will be out there again Thursday morning at 8:00am

Here is the link to the courts website

Here is a copy of an email the owner has sent out

For this week (Sep. 21 through 26) the courts will be free to play on, so bring your friends (players & non-players) and get down here!

Our hours of operation this week (Sep 21 through 26; Monday - Saturday) are:
8:00 - 12:00 mornings,
then opening again in the evening
from 6:00 - 10:00 pm.

We are truly grateful for everyone's support, ideas, and feedback - And are looking forward to building great relationships with you all.


Looking toward the future:

After this week we'll begin a drop-in and punch pass system.

For drop-in play, we'll charge by the hour at $3 per person for mornings, and $4 per person for evenings.

We'll also be selling a 10 and 20 time punch pass (Punch pass good for both mornings and evenings!):

10 Punch Pass - $27 (1 Free Hour or $2.70 per time )
20 Punch Pass - $51 (3 Free Hours or $2.55 per time)

Hours of operation will stay the same:
Monday Through Saturday
8:00am - 12:00 morning
6:00pm - 10:00 evening

Best Regards,
Charles Riggs
