Highlands Ranch opens outdoor pickleball courts

As popularity for the sport grows, the need for more courts increase

Posted

Highlands Ranch pickleball players now have six new outdoor courts to enjoy at Westridge Recreation Center.  

The Highlands Ranch Community Association celebrated the opening of the new courts on Aug. 24 and games have since been practically nonstop, General Manager Mike Bailey said at a Highlands Ranch Metro District meeting.

“We had two grand openings that were packed in the morning and the evening, our reservations are hard to get, it’s amazing,” Bailey said. “It’s a drop in the bucket for the (need), but it’s a good start.”

The courts are HRCA’s first outdoor pickleball amenities, prompted by the popularity of the indoor courts. Already, a full slate of programming has been rolled out for both indoor and outdoor pickleball courts, with plans to expand the outdoor schedule next year.

Equipment is available to check-out at the Westridge fitness desk.

Outdoor courts are open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Four courts will be open for weekday drop-in hours and reservations can be made online. There is no fee to reserve courts.
