Pickle Ball

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a game much like tennis except it is played with paddles instead of rackets and whiffle balls instead of tennis balls. The court is also smaller than a tennis court, and uses a lower net. For additional rules and information, please view this document


Outdoor pickle ball is available at the two tennis courts behind the Bellaire Recreation Center, 7008 5th Street. These courts operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may also reserve one court at a time for up to two hours. The cost is $3.00 / hour for Bellaire Residents, or $5.00 / hour for non-residents. To make a reservation, please call the Bellaire Recreation Center front desk at (713) 662-8280.


We now have pickle ball courts inside the Bellaire Recreation Center gymnasium! These courts are open for public play on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am - 1pm starting January 11. To use the courts, there is a $10 daily admission fee or you can purchase a Recreation Membership for $30/year for Bellaire Residents, $40/year for non-residents. If you have any other questions, please call the Recreation Center front desk at (713) 662-8280.
