Pickleball Club


Come Join The Pickleball Fun!

Pickleball is the fastest growing senior sport in North America! A private 55+ community, the Ahwatukee Recreation Center (ARC) in southeast Phoenix, Arizona has 4 first class outdoor courts. The ARC Pickleball Club has more than 170 members, including guys and gals in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Members range in skill level from beginner to advanced, so everyone can have fun. During the winter season (Nov-Mar) we even offer our club members FREE skills and advanced lessons. Click HERE to email a question or comment to the ARC Pickleball Club. Better yet, just come by the courts almost any morning.

Are you an ARC member, but can’t play pickleball because of a physical limitation? You can still join the fun by becoming a social member of the Pickleball Club. 55 or older, but not an ARC member? Call 480.893.2549 for information on joining the ARC.
