Pickleball is a popular court sport played with a hard paddle and a perforated plastic ball. A hybrid of badminton, tennis, and ping-pong, pickleball is a fun, multigenerational game that can be played at all levels, making it possible for even those with limited physical abilities to stay active.
The Hot Springs Village Pickleball Club consists of 14 fenced courts hosting 250+ players per week, and the courts have LED lights for night play. The Club conducts weekly planned play sessions for all skill levels of play, women’s, men’s, and mixed groups, as well as organizes free introductory lessons with loaner equipment. Competitive play is also offered for all skill levels. Each year the Club hosts two Open House events for residents and guests alike to try the sport.
The Bocce Ball courts are located across from the Coronado Community Center. The game of skill and concentration, rather than physical stamina, is fun and easy to learn. It is played on a flat surface (similar to a bowling lane) with the object to get game balls as close as possible to the target ball (pallino). All equipment is provided by the Village Bocce Ball Club.
The Senior Softball League is open to men 50 years or older and women 35 years and older. The league plays two sessions each year: Spring—April – June and Fall—August – November. The games are played on Thursday mornings at the Boys & Girls Club’s field off HWY 7.
The Village Green Bowls Club is active all year. Lawn bowling is a game with moderate exercise. The game is played on a green with a target ball and is similar to regular bowling. However, the balls weigh only two to three pounds and are less strenuous on the legs and back. The object of the game is to get balls near the target ball. The balls are biased, so they are rolled left to right or right to left making lawn bowling a challenge.
