Pickleball Courts Now Open

September 14, 2018

We continue to improve and add amenities to the Manalapan Recreation Center (MRC). We received a large number of requests from a variety of residents for Pickleball Courts. Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. The equipment needed is a paddle and a plastic ball with holes (similar to a wiffleball). 

By re-purposing an underutilized Hockey Rink (there is still a rink located in the back of the facility that was resurfaced two years ago) we were able to install 4 new Pickleball Courts. The Manalapan Recreation Center (MRC) has something for everyone! All ages are welcome to enjoy our facility. 

The Pickle Ball Courts will be open 7 days a week and will follow the Manalapan Recreation Center hours of operation:
