Orcas Island Pickleball
Be active. Be inspired. Be connected.
Even though we're on a small island, we maintain a list of over 75 pickleball players. We have regular drop-in sessions throughout the year with three courts indoors and three permanent plus one temporary courts outdoors.
We had our 3rd Annual Pickleball tournament, sponsored by the Orcas Island Rotary Club, in 2019.
Spring/Summer 2020, we will continue to offer skill development sessions as well as Beginner's Lessons. And newcomers can learn to play pickleball with us during drop-in sessions all year long.
In 1965, Pickleball was created in Washington State. And, got it's silly name from a dog named Pickles who liked to chase the balls.
