Pickleball & Court Sports

Our indoor court facilities are perfect for your year-round needs, with one tennis court, four pickleball courts and a basketball hoop. Whether you want to have a regular game, do some occasional drop-ins or learn some new skills, our court sport section of the Fitness Barn is ready for you!

Dedicated pickleball courts

GMCF hosts four courts that are dedicated to just supporting pickleball play. Custom painted floors include all the regulation lines and nets that you don’t have to move around, and 32′ high ceilings to make sure your full game is on display. This is Central Vermont’s premier spot to get your year-round pickleball fix!

Organized play

Throughout the week we have court time set aside for level-specific play so you can find the right cohort to join. We use Player Lineup to manage sign-ups for these sessions. Click the link to create your account – it’s a great system for ensuring enough people will be there for a great game.

Private play

If you’ve got a group of pickleball partners ready to play, please call our Front Desk to book court time outside of our regularly scheduled games.
