Pickleball at Treelands
Pickleball at Treelands

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1.  A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.

2.  Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.

3.  Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

Our pickleball courts are free to our guests to use!

We are sorry, but pickleball courts are for GUEST USE ONLY. 

We have 3 courts at “The Original” Treeland, and 2 courts at the Treeland Farm RV Resort!
