Whether you're looking for a partner to play with or just want to enjoy a casual game and make new friends, we have options to get on the court and get connected.
Open Play provides a series of set times each week for players to rotate in and out of games and play with different partners. Everyone who registered gets a chance to play, and it's a great way to get to know other pickleball players. Your club may offer level-based Open Play options, as well as times dedicated for our ARORA community. Open Play is for ages 12+. Registration is required. Balls are provided.
Book an available court and enjoy a game of pickleball with your friends on your terms. Court reservations are $20/hour for Standard Members, divided among participants. A Signature Member’s portion of court time is complimentary.
If you enjoy Open Play, mixers are a natural next step. No need to bring a partner — you’ll be matched with a similarly skilled player and opponents. Play will be facilitated by a pickleball pro.
