A little bit ABOUT Pickleball in our area –
Pickleball was first introduced to the Toledo area by Joanne and Mike Tressler in 2008. The first club to organize was the Toledo Pickleball Club in 2012. Members play on six outdoor courts located at 301 Glenwood Ave., Rossford, Ohio and indoors at the Rossford Recreation Center in the winter months.
In July of 2013, the Village of Holland constructed three courts in Strawberry Acres Park, located at 1035 Clarion Ave., Holland, Ohio. Due to the growing number of players, they built two more courts in August of 2014, and a practice court in 2015. During the winter, they play on four indoor courts at a local gym facility.
In June of 2016, the Sylvania Recreation District resurfaced three older courts in the back parking lot at Centennial Terrace, located at 5773 Centennial Rd., Sylvania, Ohio. The newly formed Sylvania Pickleball Club enjoys play here, and is looking forward to the possibility of new courts in the next year or . Winter play is held at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter, a local ice skating and sports facility.
Each club independently manages their own membership requirements and facilitates their own activities, including play times, leagues and tournaments, social gatherings and community interaction. There are nearly 350 active pickleball players in the Toledo area, many of them holding memberships to all three clubs.
In addition to these three established clubs, there are other locations to play. You should contact the locations for playing times and membership requirements.
