Play Times & Schedule

Our group uses Playtime Scheduler (an online scheduling tool) to post most play dates. Go to their website and register.  Select Isle as the location. Play dates will appear. We have been limiting indoor sessions to 20 players because we only have three courts. Anyone can add additional sessions when the IREC is available.

We look forward to playing on our new eight outdoor courts at Isle High School this spring. For indoor play, we have three courts at IREC.

Programs

Beginner Pickleball — The first Wednesday of the Month, IAPA offers beginner lessons. Volunteers will help you learn the basics of playing pickleball. We have paddles at the court for you to use. Please wear appropriate court shoes.

Sunday Family Play — Details to come. Thought is to have families come and enjoy some outdoor fun.

Summer Rec Program — IAPA will be offering pickleball with the IREC summer program.

Team Building Fun — Pickleball can be a great team-building activity. In playing doubles, you and your partner work together to outscore the other team. IAPA would love to teach you the basics to be able to play this awesome sport. We will cover equipment, unique lingo, score keeping, court position, and the fundamentals of serve, return, and the volley. We will provide paddles and balls. Just bring tennis shoes.

Team Building Pickleball can work with small groups (4 people) to large groups (12). Plan for 2-3 hours of fun and learning. We can work with your schedule. Please email [email protected] to schedule a team-building playdate.
