Pickleball at West Hills Athletic Club

Come out and try the game of Pickleball!

Pickleball is a fun, fast paced game that is sweeping the country. The game is played with a wooden or composite paddle, a perforated plastic ball, similar to a whiffle ball and a pickleball net system, like a tennis net, but smaller.

The game is a paddle sport that all ages can learn to play. It combines the elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong and is an easy game to learn. Tennis players learn it quickly since some of the same strokes are used. Players enjoy the competitive and social aspects of the game along with a great cardio work out.
