Registration open for Eden Prairie summer leagues

Note that there are a limited number of spots available, so don’t delay!

From Casey Hagert, Recreation Lead for Eden Prairie:

Hello Pickleball Players,

I hope you are all doing well. The days are getting longer and the snow is melting which means we are not too far from another great season of Pickleball!

Registration is currently open for 2015 Pickleball leagues! This summer, we will be offering a doubles league on Thursday evenings for $35/team as well as a Ladder League on Saturdays for $15/person. Registration will stay open through June 4th.  As a reminder, I’ve included the steps for online registration for your teams so that you can get signed up from the comfort of your computer!

You will first want to call the Community Center at 952-949-8470 to obtain your TEAM PIN and TEAM ACCOUNT numbers in order to complete your registration (if you don’t still have them from previous seasons). PLEASE NOTE: family pin numbers will not work to get your team registered for a league! The Community Center staff will be looking up your team from past seasons.

Then you can go to https://parksandrec.edenprairie.org/ >Register>Adult Athletics>select the “Leagues” tab>Pickleball – and then find your desired night and league. Through this process you are able to pay online with a credit card. If you need to pay with a check or cash, you can still do that at the Community Center during the appropriate registration period.

We hope that you will all be joining us again for another fun season!
