New Place to Play – Perrysburg Tennis Center

Hi Everyone,

Toledo Pickleball is excited to announce that the owners of the Perrysburg Tennis Center are interested in providing another indoor venue for Pickleball in our local area.

They are adding four Pickleball courts to their large indoor facility located at 1750 Progress Drive in Perrysburg, Ohio. To get things started they will be offering free play from Monday, Dec 14 through Friday, Dec 18 between 1:00-3:00pm.

If you are interested in playing, please send an email to Bob at

In your email please let them know which day you would like to attend and also and one backup date.  They will only assign you to your backup date if your primary date is full.  They will be limiting participation to 24 players per day.

If any dates don’t fill up, they will allow some players to play on their backup dates as well.  After playing we will ask you to fill out a brief questionnaire.

Please forward this post to others who may be interested in indoor Pickleball at PTC!

See you on the courts!

West YMCA Beginner Pickleball – 8 Week Session

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying this somewhat warmer weather. It gets me super excited to think we might be playing OUTDOOR Pickleball soon!!!  I am a bit partial to outdoor play!

I apologize for this very late post regarding a our first ever “beginner” pickleball session.  This class is dedicated to those players who have never played the game before or for those who like to play a less competitive style of play.  This is a great opportunity to tell your friends about Pickleball and ask them to come and give it a try. Here are the details of the class:

Where: West YMCA 2110 Tremainsville Road, Toledo OH

When: February 29-April 18, 2012  8:45am-11:15am

Cost: $10 for Max Members or $20.oo Associate Members

One need that we have is instructors.  We really need to make sure someone is there each week to help with the rules, set up of the courts and to make it fun!  A huge big thank you to Sandy Kushma for taking the lead on this and being our first instructor.  Sandy will not be able to cover the class next week so please call or email me if you are interested in helping out with this great opportunity. 

See you on the courts!

Rossford Location for Evening Pickleball Play


Great news, we have been given the okay to use the Rossford United Methodist Church gym for pickleball. The coordinator is working on a calendar of dates available. The $3. drop-in fee is the same as Tam-O.
Would you give us an idea of preference of evenings you would like. We can have Tues., Wed., some Thurs., Fri. evenings probably from 6 to 9 pm. We can also set up play for The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. All Sundays are unavailable.
As soon as I get numbers from you all, I will work to coordinate and get the dates out to everyone. There might be times we will have to be flexible, like when they have rummage sales and Christmas/Easter events during the week.

Please email Marsha at or Connie at with any questions/best times.
