After receiving interest from the community for Pickleball hours, Orinda Parks and Rec established drop-in hours on Friday afternoons that began at the end of October. This weekly drop-in period was introduced as a pilot, in order to allow staff time to determine if the hours needed to be increased due to demand or decreased due to the lack of interest.
With the increased interest and use these last few months, the department has received requests to add additional drop-in opportunities for pickleball players. For that reason, we have added an additional drop-in day on Tuesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tennis Court #1. This will be in addition to the drop-in hours currently scheduled on Fridays, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Players will need to bring their own pickleball racket and balls. We’re asking drop-in players to be courteous when others are waiting, as it is customary during drop-in play to allow waiting players to “rotate in” after the completion of each game.
Parks and Recreation staff are happy to adjust the drop-in hours should the demand increase or decrease. Due to the department's limited resources at this time, we’re asking the community to keep us abreast of court use. If you would like to see the hours adjusted, please email us at OrindaParksandRec@CityofOrinda.org.
