What is Pickleball?
Where can I learn to play?
To get started, you'll want to register for the Pickleball Academy. This is a three-night introduction to Pickleball. You'll learn the history of the sport, the four phases of a Pickleball point, basic Pickleball skills, and how to keep score. Paddles will be provided if you need one.
After you graduate from the Academy, you will join the "D" level play group. Learning doesn't stop after Academy, however. You'll find additional Player Development opportunities through Skills Training and Coaching. These sessions are free and are offered throughout the year. Check out the schedule!
What about equipment?
You don't need much to get started in the sport:
- Court shoes (please no running shoes)
- Pickleball Paddle
- Sherril Kerr reps Engage paddles: 970-274-2850
- Steven Michaud reps Selkirk paddles: 520-603-0350

Do I have to be a member to play?
All Robson Ranch residents must join the Robson Ranch Denton Pickleball Club (RRDPC) in order to play on the indoor and outdoor courts during club time and to participate in club activities. The cost to join is $25/year. Join here
After Academy, when can I play?
You'll find plenty of play opportunities on both the inside and outside courts. The schedule is posted on the website and is organized by skill level: "D" through "A."
When you graduate from the Academy, you will be rated a "D" and will be added to the "D" group for organized club play. If you enjoy the game and work to advance your skills, there's a process for advancing to the next level. You can read more about the rating advancement process here.
