  2. Is it possible to add Sports Core in Kohler as a Pickleball location? It is offered Mondays & Fridays 12-2pm.

    1. Hi, We have been in contact with the Sports Core, and currently the Sports Core has asked us not to list the Pickleball schedule there. This may change in the future.

  4. I think I recall that you offered a play schedule AND a place on line to sign up for play on any scheduled time. Is my memory correct?
    If so, was it a blog site or some other scheduling program. We`re starting a new group in NW Arkansas and a method of signing up on line could be helpful.
    I signed in last year (2017) while in Sheboygan & played with the Oostburg group this year. THANKS for any response.

    1. Hi Jim, Glad you could play with us. It's always fun to have visiting pickleball players. We don't use sign up forms as usually we have enough people showing up. However, I haven't used, but have heard that "Google Forms" is quite good and is free. You may want to check that out. Good luck with your new group. I bet it will grow rapidly. The game is very addicting. Rog

    1. You don't have to be a member to play with us. If you're new to pickleball, we recommend taking the beginner lessons which are free and will be held most Thursdays at the Sheboygan Falls YMCA at 11am to noon. If you're not a Y member, there is a small charge for use of the Y. The sign up sheet is at the Falls YMCA desk. Paddles and balls are provided for the lessons.

      If you already play pickleball, just show up to play at one of the regular scheduled times - See "Playing Schedule" tab at top of page. If you want to join the group, just ask how to do that when playing with us. Looking forward to playing with you.

  6. Hello-
    I am a beginner and wondering if the beginner lessons are still held at the S Falls YMCA 11-noon on Thursdays? Is it every week or do you recommend I call first?
    Thanks much!

    1. Hi Kimberly,
      Yes, currently the beginner lessons are being held every week from 11 to noon at the Sheboygan Falls YMCA. Most weeks it is fine to just show up, but ideally you should sign up/call the Falls Y to be put on the list. Call me and leave your phone number on answering machine if you have any questions.

    1. Hi,

      We'll be having a lesson, so just show up with some court shoes. We have paddles to use.

      See you Thursday at 11am.

  8. Is there any way to make pickleball courts multi functional? They are the same size as badminton. Wondering if there are any taller poles that could be used and all there would need to do is raise and lower the net to change from badminton to pickleball or vice versa. There are no places around to play badminton and this seems like you could have the best of both worlds by placing in taller poles to have both sports in 1 court.

    1. Hi,

      At the Sheboygan Y, 2 courts are actually marked for badminton also. The outside lines of pickleball and badminton correspond (I believe for badminton doubles), but the "kitchen line" in pickleball is 7 feet from the net, while the short serve line in badminton is 6' 6" from the net. The Y has both marked. I did play in an open badminton group at the Sheboygan Y multiple years ago. I don't know if it is still going, but you could check it out since it sounds like you're interested in badminton.

      Our outdoor pickleball courts are usually shared with tennis courts. I'm unaware of any permanent outdoor badminton courts in the area and unaware of any tall poles made specially to convert outdoor pickleball courts to badminton courts, but it does seem like this would be easy to do.

      Anyway, good luck finding places to play badminton in this area. It is a fun game and Madison has a very active group if you live near there. Also come join us for pickleball if you're in this area. I bet you'll enjoy that also.
