During the winter months, if you would like to get in touch with pickleball staff, it is best to email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Reminder: Please yell BALL to the court where your ball rolled (i.e. "ball, Court 2!") and let the players on that court return it to you. It is very important that you remain on your court when this happens. To ensure safety for all, do not retrieve your ball on adjacent courts, and always call BALL when your ball enters another court.

The Vail Recreation District has adopted a set of Code of Conduct and Etiquette & Safety Guidelines for pickleball. All seasonal and annual passholders will be expected to agree to and respect these standards. The guidelines will also be posted at the courts so non-passholders can also be aware of expectations. Thank you for embracing these guidelines that are intended to foster an inclusive, kind and welcoming environment for all who visit our courts.
