Pickleball

Dedicated 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 the Player Lineup software (https://gmcf.playerlineup.com/) to manage sign-ups for these sessions so you can always ensure enough people will be there for a great game.

Private Play

If you and a few comrades are looking to gather for a session you can use our court reservation system to book time during the time outside of the organized games. Call 223-6161 for schedule availability.

Pickleball Machine

That’s right – we have one! If you are looking for a focused practice session there is no better way than to use our machine with a 125 ball capacity to hit shot after consistent shot. You can reserve the machine at our front desk or by calling 223-6161. Requires a membership or Drop-in fee if you are a non-member in order to reserve the court.

Skills & Drills Sessions

These are hour-long practice sessions where a coach will run organized drills designed to help you develop the various skills of pickleball. Classes are level-specific and will require a punch card or drop-in to attend. Drop-ins are $10 and a 10 Class Punch Card is $70. These will be available for sale at the front desk of GMCF.

League Play

We have two formats of pickleball league where individuals and partners can get regular competitive play each week. On Friday evenings we do Individual Shootout which allows a spectrum of players the ability to get sorted by ability and play round-robin style, switching partners each game. Than on Sunday mornings we host Partner Round Robin play where teams are sorted by ability and play as a pair the entire session, but can change partners week to week. If you have any interest in participating in the 2021/2022 season please contact [email protected].
