The new Golden Peak Pickleball Center in Vail is one of the finest pickleball facilities on Colorado's western slope. The six new courts at Golden Peak have the RSS Reflex 500 polyurathane cushioned court surface, a high performance surface that is easier on the body than conventional outdoor court surfaces. The Golden Peak Pickleball Center is conveniently located between Vail Village and the Gerald R Ford Amphitheater and Ford Park. The pickleball center features a comfortable, shaded seating area for socializing in-between games, a filtered water bottle filler, a solar-powered bathroom facility and a helpful staff to maintain the courts and facilitate programming. During drop-in play, a "Challenge Court" is offered for advanced-level players, and staff work hard to optimize player rotations based on skill levels and to minimize wait time between games. Staff also have balls and demo paddles available to use during drop-in times, and new equipment is available for purchase.  

Weather permitting, the outdoor courts at Golden Peak are open from mid-April through the end of October. Residents and guests of all ages are welcome to participate in daily drop-in play, clinics, private lessons, leagues, mixers, tournaments, junior camps and more. At the end of the outdoor season, indoor play will resume at Red Sandstone Elementary School.


PICKLEBALL PROGRAMMING
