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 >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!

Tournament Season Is Fast Approaching!

February is coming to an end, which means spring is practically right around the corner, followed closely by summer. That means outdoor pickleball and pickleball tournaments!

Information on two of our biggest ones has been posted. Be sure to have a look, and be ready when registration opens:

Miracle-Ear’s 6th Annual Southwest Metro Pickleball Club Tournament

Eden Prairie’s 3rd Annual Pickleball Tournament

Even Santa Plays Pickleball!


Back to the service line, players pause
Up steps Good Old Santa Claus
Paddles and plastic balls, they’re our toys
Serve it low and fast, let’s go boys

Unable to find work as mall Santas, these four SW Metro Pickleball club members decided to put their Santa suits to good use on the pickeball court. Enjoy this wacky video, and Happy Holidays!

New web site

Wet paint

If you’re reading this, you’re most likely already aware that we have a new web site! Take a look around and see what we’ve done so far. A word of caution however – the paint is still wet, some things are incomplete or missing, and much of what you see is subject to change.

As the site matures, you will find many exciting new features, all designed to keep you in contact with the club, the sport of pickleball, and your fellow pickleball players.

In addition to a shiny new web site, we also have new social media accounts! You can find us on Facebook by clicking here, and on Twitter as @SWMetroPB. If you’re on either of those platforms, follow us!

As always, we welcome your feedback!

P.S. – if you’re looking for something from the old web site, it’s still available at We’re not quite ready to pull the plug on it yet.
