Pickleball on Kauai

What To Do In Kauai – Pickleball – Kilauea

UPDATE: The Kilauea Gym has been closed since March 2020, but as of last week (April 2022) they are back open on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9:00 to 1:00. There are three, brand new pickleball courts in Princeville on Emmalani Drive. If vaccinated, join players on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 8:30 AM. Or, Fridays at 3:30 PM. This is a social group. More advanced players have their own times. Stop by and check it out.

Join us for Pickleball In Paradise!  Pickleball is a very popular racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but has become popular among “adults” as well.

We have a growing number of players on the North Shore who welcome visitors to play with them. Tom and I play at least once a week. There are racquets and balls available for you to use. Three indoor courts accommodate beginners, social players, and competitive players. No need to sign up. Just arrive at the Kilauea Gym on Keneke Street (an 8 minute drive from Honu Point) at 9:00 for beginners/social players and 11:00 for competitive players on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Or, at 9:00 on Sundays for beginners and 12:00 on Sundays for competitive players.

When the Kilauea courts are unavailable, many players set up nets at the three outdoor courts on Emmalani Drive in Princeville. For more information contact Ted at northshorepickleballohana@googlegroups.com.  Our goal is to HAVE FUN!
