Pickleball Zone

Central Oregon has over 2,500 pickleball players from La Pine in the South to Prineville in the North. While there are lots of places to play outdoors, there are very limited indoor facilities. Most indoor arenas are dual purpose facilities and either have bad lighting or a shiny floor…or both.

With the creation of the Pickleball Zone we are able to offer the Central Oregon Pickleballers a dedicated world class indoor facility.
