Pickleball

Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. It is played on a badminton size court with a paddle and a plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball). It’s easy to learn and good exercise. Give it a try!

pickleball ladder leagues

Livonia Parks and Recreation is excited to announce that we will be offering ladder leagues indoors at the Kirksey Recreation Center for the Fall and Winter Sessions. Participants are expected to bring their own paddle. Balls will be provided. 

Players will provide their rating at the time of registration which will be used to schedule the first night of games. Participants will sign up as an individual and play four rounds of doubles each night with a different partner each game. Depending upon the total number of points accumulated each week, participants will have the chance to move up and down the ladder each week. Fall II Leagues will run for six weeks. Starting in Winter 2023, Ladder Leagues will run for seven weeks.
