Pickleball Court FAQs at Pine Nursery Park
Why does the Bend Pickleball Club receive reserved court space?
The Bend Pickleball Club raised over 60% of the funds to construct the 16 pickleball courts at Pine Nursery Park at a time when pickleball in Bend was in its infancy and popularity was nowhere near what it is today. The pickleball club also performs the ongoing cleaning and light maintenance of the courts, so they are in excellent condition for all to enjoy. The purpose of the facility then and now is to provide a home for organized club play and events, and drop-in community access.
When does the Bend Pickleball Club have use of the courts?
April – October: Monday – Saturday, 7:00 am – 2:00 pm
November – March: Monday – Saturday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Are there courts available for public drop-in use during Bend Pickleball Club time?
Yes. Courts 1-4 are open for drop-in use during all pickleball club-organized play times listed above with the exception of a few tournaments annually. Outside of club play times, all courts are open for drop-in use.
Will the Bend Pickleball Club reserved times continue to expand?
The pickleball club-reserved times are currently capped until additional courts are available to ensure there is no reduction in drop-in access.
Does Bend Park & Recreation District have plans for additional pickleball courts?
The district is currently considering constructing additional courts to Pine Nursery during the final phase of the park’s development to support both open drop-in use and Bend Pickleball Club use. Decisions will be informed by community recreation needs survey data, funding availability, activity compatibility with other park uses and other factors. The district continues to explore other sites for pickleball courts; however, noise and parking considerations limit options.
