With the coronavirus pandemic, expect all indoor city, county and private facilities to be closed for the foreseeable future. Outdoor public parks are open for pickleball play.
UPDATE: May 10 | Upstate Pickleball is going to wait to list organized play days/times/locations on our calendar until more of the pandemic dust settles. Until then, we recommend you organize small groups to play at days/times/locations of your choosing.
Rain played havoc on the 2019 Greenville Spring Smash. We made a tough decision in canceling Mixed Doubles. We also endured two rain delays to get in Women’s & Men’s Doubles play on Saturday. Players were patient and understanding throughout and the competition on the courts was intense.
The inaugural Greenville Pickleball Spring Smash is in the books. Over 130 players participated in the tournament. Rain almost washed out Mixed Doubles play on Friday but the sun shined and matches were played despite 20 mph wind gusts. Ah, but Saturday… glorious day for Pickleball. Little to no wind and lots of spring sunshine.
