So, what is this funny named sport? Outside of being the fastest growing sport in America, this game is described as a combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong. The game is played on a badminton size court, utilizing a net like the one used in tennis, and the paddles are fashioned after ping pong paddles. The ball? It is a wiffle type ball. Most of our players are over 50 years old, but younger folks are welcome. Come check it out!!
All skill levels will be welcomed for all scheduled times. Courts will be broken down into Recreational and Competitive play.
Location: Adams Tennis Courts, 71 Union Street Peterborough, NH

Coordinators will try to make it for most session however they might not be at every session.
The PCC is now being used as the bad weather indoor location for the Playground Program, so no indoor pickleball is available during this time.
Masks: Masks are recommended but not required during play.
Outside of playing: If 6ft of social distance is not possible masks are mandatory per NH Mask Ordinance.
Registration: No registrations needed however we need to be able to track who plays for contact tracing purposes. We will be using a sign-in sheet. Participants will need to sign in and screen themselves of Covid-19 questions. There will be a binder inside the Orange Box & PCC Bag with pages of these sheets. I have attached a copy of that to this email as an example. Coordinators please remind everyone to check in.
Screening questions: Participants will need to self-screen themselves and check the box when signing in. Screening questions will be posted on the Orange Box, on the fence above the Orange Box and on the gate of the tennis courts. However, we will not require/ be taking temperature checks.
Fee: $3 pp each time slot or Quarterly Year Rate $58
Orange Box: Equipment box and nets will not be sanitized so please use hand sanitizer after use. There is hand sanitizer in the Orange Box. If there is not a time slot that works for you, feel free to use the equipment on your own and put $3 in the money bag inside the Orange box and check yourself in on the sign in sheet. The code for the locks on the Orange box is 8064!
Looking for Pickleball Coordinators: We are also looking for some more Coordinators! I want to thank our current Coordinators for doing an AMAZING JOB this winter following Covid Guidelines and always being reliable!
THANK YOU Bruce Dennis, JoAnn Fletcher, and Vance Finch. The last 6 months of Pickleball wouldn’t have been possible without you! I also wanted to thank our participants for being respectful to our Coordinators and with the Covid-19 guidelines.
Thank you all for your patience!

COVID-19 patients while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment are
not considered to have a close contact exposure and should answer “No” to this
iii. Domestic travel within the U.S. outside of New England no longer requires quarantine upon return to NH, although people are recommended to still follow CDC’s travel guidance, including wearing a well-fitted face mask while traveling, practicing social distancing, getting tested 3-5 days after travel (with a molecular or PCR-based test), and limiting public interactions after travel (even if not required to quarantine). Travelers/visitors to AND residents of NH need to self-quarantine for 10 days after the last date of any international travel (except for essential travel to/from Canada*), or travel on a cruise ship. Essential critical infrastructure employees should follow guidelines outlined in the NH DPHS Employer Travel, Screening, and Exclusion Guidance.

- You are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and more than 14 days have passed since you received the second dose of your COVID-19 vaccine.
- You have previously tested positive for active COVID-19 infection (by PCR or antigen testing) in the last 90 days (if you had a previous infection that was more than 90 days ago, you must still follow all quarantine requirements)
