Vail Pickleball Open




Important Announcement


Updated March 25: The Vail Recreation District's top priority is the safety and well-being of our residents, guests and employees.

In cooperation with the updated Eagle County Public Health Order plus the Colorado Statewide Stay at Home Order, and in the effort to prevent community spread of COVID-19 and to protect our most vulnerable populations, the Vail Recreation District (VRD) is canceling all programs and events, and closing all VRD facilities, effective March 13 until at least April 16, 2020.

This includes all open gyms, youth sports programs, adult leagues, lessons and clinics, walk-in sports and activities, and private rentals and events.

All VRD facilities will be closed to the public until further notice, including the Imagination Station, Dobson Arena and Vail Gymnastics Center. The Vail Nordic Center pro shop and restaurant are now closed for the season, and we are no longer grooming the trails. If you need to return season rentals, please call 970-476-8366.

With the announced closure of local schools, VRD has made the difficult decision to cancel our after-school program (KidZone) starting on Monday, March 16 until classes resume at Red Sandstone Elementary School.

For questions, please contact the respective department or facility listed here. Please understand that staffing will be limited during this time, and responses may be delayed.

The Golden Peak Pickleball Center in Vail has very limited parking (eight spots), and as such we encourage all tournament participants and spectators to leave plenty of extra time to find alternate parking and walk to the courts. Do not plan on parking on-site, as it is very unlikely that there will be space available. There is also no parking available in the surrounding neighborhood - the closest public parking to the pickleball center is in the Vail Village Parking Structure (free during the day and a five-minute walk to the courts).

Remember, there is very limited parking at the pickleball center, do not expect to be able to park on-site. Please plan ahead and leave yourself plenty of time to get to the courts. Matches will not be postponed or rescheduled due to parking or transportation issues, and latecomers may forfeit their match.
