High School Pickleball Courts

New Pickleball Courts Open!

In 2018 community members approached the City to ask about creating areas for a new sport called “Pickleball”. In response, our Community Services Team put temporary pickleball lines on the floor of the Multi-Purpose Room at the Community Center and purchased a moveable pickleball net for indoor play during the winter months. It was a huge success, so shortly after we added pickleball court lines to the tennis courts at Giorgi Park. 

This week we completed a collaborative project with Healdsburg Unified School District to convert two under-utilized sports courts at the Healdsburg High School tennis complex into dedicated pickleball courts. These courts will be used by High School physical education classes during the school year, and when not in use by the School District, available to community member through a monitored use program during school hours, and open to the public when school is not in session. 

We are grateful to be able to collaborate with the School District and community members on worthwhile projects like this. For more information on pickleball, please read on!

Healdsburg Pickleball Monitoring Program

The City of Healdsburg collaborated with Healdsburg Unified School District and representatives of the local Pickleball group to develop a plan to redevelop an underused 'sport court' at the high school and convert them into four pickleball courts. In addition, the City of Healdsburg and the Healdsburg Unified School District agreed to allow the use of the courts during school hours from 8 am -12 pm under a volunteer monitoring program. The details of the program are as follows:
  • Pickleball will provide volunteers to be the court monitors.
  • Monitors will be volunteers of the City of Healdsburg and must pass a background check at the police department.
  • Monitors who pass the background checks are provided a key to open the courts for the players, and they are required to be on-site while play is happening. 
  • If a monitor cannot be on-site, the facility will be closed, and no play can happen until after school hours. 
  • Monitors must lock the courts and the end of the day's session. 
  • Hours of play are Monday - Friday 8 am - 12 pm.
  • Courts will be locked before 12 pm if the monitor present is leaving the facility and there is other monitor to take over supervision.
  • All players must sign in via a QR code at the facility.
  • The QR code will track the participant's name and time of entry.
  • All participants will be prompted to agree to the City of Healdsburg's Liability Waiver.
