Pickleball players hosting fundraiser for new courts 

Pickleball Paso Robles

Local Pickleball Ambassador, Jack Hodges.

Now that the Paso Robles City Council has given local pickleball players permission to resurface the old outdoor roller hockey rink in Centennial Park, the players are hosting a fundraiser to pay the bills.

The Paso Robles Pickleball Club is hoping to generate the $18,000 to establish permanent courts at the park. It will be the first venue of its kind on the Central Coast. The fundraiser is Tuesday, May 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Paso Robles Inn Ballroom. The fundraising happy hour will include a silent auction, raffle prizes and a no host bar. The public is invited to come and show support.

Silent auction items include

  • Airplane tour of the Central Coast
  • Zip-lining fun for four
  • Vintage limo wine tasting tour & gourmet lunch
  • Paso Robles wines. Including some large format bottles
  • Gift cards for movies, massage, restaurants, golf, groceries & more…

What is pickleball? It’s one of the fastest growing sports may never have heard about. It’s a combination of tennis and ping pong but played on a smaller court.
It’s a good fun workout, social and accessible to people of all ages and ability.

Locals are welcomed to come and learn more about pickleball. It is played in Paso Robles at Centennial Park on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings from 8:15 a.m to 11 a.m. Five courts are available and a $3 fee is charged by the city to play. The courts are on the old roller rink and fundraising is underway to resurface and stripe the courts for pickleball.
