Pickleball#

Pickleball FAQs

Where will future pickleball courts be?#

Park Planning & Development continues to explore options for additional pickleball in Fort Collins. As identified in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, on page 175, one potential area of focus for additional pickleball courts could be Fossil Creek Park. Keep up to date with future Park Planning & Development projects online at www.fcgov.com/parkplanning.

How are the courts maintained?#

The Parks Infrastructure Replacement Program, formerly known as the Parks Life Cycle Program, provides minor and major renovations for existing sport courts, as well as other park assets. Minor and major renovations to courts include crack fill of asphalt courts, resurfacing and conversion of asphalt to post-tension concrete. This program also adds pickleball lines when requested (see question below about access ft collins).   

Maintenance of courts is provided by Parks maintenance staff. This includes installation and removal of windscreens, replacement of nets, power-washing courts when necessary, and more. 

Who's in charge of snow removal on the courts?#

Snow removal of courts is not provided as part of the Parks snow removal operations.  Users are asked to use plastic, non-metal-edged shovels, to clear the courts. Snow may not impede adjacent tennis/pickleball courts or create safety issues for others. Absolutely no ice shippers or any type of implement that may scratch, dent, chip, or cut the surface of the playing area are allowed.

How do I make a pickleball court reservation?#

To reserve outdoor courts, contact Lewis Tennis 970-493-7000.
