Spring/Summer 2021. NEW UPDATED BRISTOL PICKLEBALL SCHEDULE

After a long winter of extended outdoor play, we are finally starting to ease up on the limited number of players allowed to gather on our courts. Rhode Island COVID-19 guidelines had required us to restrict the number of players gathering thus forcing us to offer multiple sessions of play.

Beginning in April 2021.

We will be transitioning to a set schedule of outdoor play beginning sometime in April, 2021. We play at the Bristol Town Commons Tennis Courts which are located at the corners of State and Wood St. in Bristol, RI.

NOTE: Please click on the EVENTS tap at the top of this website for up to date start times. Start times will change as the weather gets warmer.

Spring Schedule

OPEN PLAY (All skill levels) – This year we will be playing on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS & SATURDAYS. Start times will be posted in the events calendar. Please remember to social distance and wear a mask when not playing. (No court fees but donations are welcomed to help pay for equipment)

EVENING OPEN PLAY (All skill levels) – During the summer months we also play on WEDNESDAY EVENINGS. Start times will be posted in the events calendar. Please remember to social distance and wear a mask when not playing. (No court fees but donations are welcomed to help pay for equipment) Last summer new LED lights we installed at the courts which now enables us to play much later into the evening.

BEGINNERS CLINIC – This year our clinic for beginners and less experienced players will be on THURSDAYS. Start times will be posted in the events calendar. Students will develop the basic skills to play the game of pickleball in a welcoming, non-intimidating, social setting. Students will also learn the fundamental rules, basic strategies, and court positions for doubles play. Please remember to social distance and wear a mask when not playing. (No court fees but donations are welcomed to help pay for equipment).
