[ARCHIVED] Registration Open for New Pickleball League

Pickleball League

The Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation Pickleball League is a doubles league open to participants ten years of age and older. The pickleball season runs from October 27 to November 17, with games played on Wednesday nights at the Council Bluffs Pickleball Club inside the Iowa West Field House (5 Arena Way, Council Bluffs). 

Invented in 1965, pickleball is a paddle sport played using a plastic ball with holes. The game combines fundamentals of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton and can be played as doubles or singles. Pickleball is played on indoor or outdoor courts measuring one-fourth the size of a standard tennis court with a lower net. 

Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation opened the first outdoor pickleball court in 2019 at Kimball Park (1801 N Broadway, Council Bluffs). The Council Bluffs Pickleball Club moved into their new facility at the Iowa West Fieldhouse in 2019 which features six indoor courts.  

Pickleball is a friendly game with simple rules making it an ideal sport for people of all ages. While the game is social, more experience equates to a more fast-paced, challenging, competitive match.

The registration fee for the Council Bluffs Pickleball League is $20 per person. More information including online registration can be found at https://www.councilbluffs-ia.gov/2470/Pickleball-League. Registration is open until October 20.
