The City of Concord is a hub for pickleball players both experienced and inexperienced. There are 14 lighted pickleball courts in the city for the public to play on during the morning, daytime and evening. The city offers classes, clinics, leagues and tournaments for anyone wishing to participate. You can find more information here.
Pickleball is a game similar to tennis and is played with a paddle and a plastic ball. The game is simple to learn and challenging to master, but all are welcome to give it a try. Beginners often use courts in the evenings, while more advanced players tend to meet in the mornings.
