Formed in 2012, the Grand Rapids Pickleball Club was organized to help promote the sport of pickleball, to locate and identify potential sites for playing and to allow it’s members to interact in a safe and fun way. Belknap Park is an excellent example of our members coming together and developing 15 pickleball courts.
Membership dues help to fund the Club expenses which include both recurring and special projects. Recurring expenses primarily include the purchase of pickleballs for play and the on-going maintenance required at the courts. There is always a continuing need for financial support for club activities. Joining the Club significantly helps support this fast-growing sport.
