Pickle ball

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.

Pickleball is designed for all ages and can be played with as few as two people. Pickleball has grown in popularity over the years because it’s easy to learn rules and quick turnaround for proficiency. But don’t think this is just your grandma’s sport. Pickleball can be fast-paced and competitive.

Pickleball (sometimes called Pickle Ball) was first played in 1965 and has developed into one of the more popular recreational sports. The game can be played with singles or doubles – often intergender teams or leagues. The rules are easy to learn and can be found on the official Pickleball website.

If you are learning about pickleball for the first time, there is no better way to learn the game than to come visit and try out the game for yourself. Highlands Sports Complex is your premier location for pickleball in the Ohio Valley (Wheeling-Steubenville area).

Our indoor sports facility has four permanently lined indoor pickleball courts – and we can even house up to 18 courts. There is not a better location for a pickleball tournament or league than right here at HSC.

Even though we know pickleball could be for everyone, we also understand that not everyone wants to play while visiting. Highlands Sports Complex has activities for everyone in the family. While the parents battle the teenagers in a pickleball game, the grandparents can take the children to the play climb area, batting cages, or indoor turf. When everyone finishes up, dine at our cafe.

Climb, game, and adventure with Highlands Sports Complex. Fun awaits for everyone in the family.
