Pickleball is one of the fastest growing racquet sports in the country. Because the ball produces slower speeds than a tennis ball, pickleball is extremely popular among senior citizens as well as younger players who are learning to play tennis, badminton, and squash. FlexCourt is proud to be one of the largest suppliers of outdoor pickleball court surfaces in the country. Our all-weather pickleball courts can be installed in a matter of hours and an existing tennis court can easily be converted into a pickleball court.
