(Edited 5/19/17) Camp Verde Pickleball (CVPB) is served in Camp Verde two days and one evening each week at the Community Center Gym, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays and Sundays, and from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. Thursdays.
There is no fee to play pickleball at the Camp Verde court in the CVCC gym. Donations are welcome.
Three USAPA-approved tournament-grade nets are available to set up on the historic hardwood floor of the old basketball gymnasium. The floor was recently refinished and is in excellent playing condition.
Three regulation pickleball courts have been laid out and marked by adhesive court tape. The tape lies flat and does not present a tripping hazard.
Twelve wooden paddles are available for free (in gym) loaner use during the Tuesday and Wednesday time slots. Many USAPA-approved balls are also available for free use by participants. If desired, the same participants may play as part of the same foursome for the entire session. Every effort is make to facilitate a speedy and equitable rotation during the session.
Netting is placed between the three courts to help cut down on stray balls interfering with play on an adjacent court.
CVPB is played according to USAPA Rules.
