Ways to play
All our courts are available to everyone to rent by the hour after 11 AM every day. We ask that you have no more than four players on court at a time, but the cost of the court is the same no matter how big or small your party. You are welcome to rent more than one court at a time and to rent courts for multiple hours if you are after a more intense play session with friends. It is possible to rent a court onsite, but we do book up in advance during busy times, so it is best to reserve early to avoid disappointment.
Our Crush Members have exclusive access to all eight courts from 6 AM to 11 AM every day for Crush Members Only Play Sessions. Players are organized by skill level and our pros operate a rotation system to make sure everyone is finding challenging games and getting as much court time as possible. In addition, Crush Members are able to book courts farther in advance than non-members, can reserve courts at a discount, and are welcome to make use of any unused courts at any time to play with other Crush Members.
classes and lessons
Our staff of pickleball pros run a variety of regularly-scheduled classes that are open to all. If you’re looking for something for more personal our pros offer private lessons tailored to your pickleball needs. This includes sessions for absolute beginners all the way up to focused drilling sessions learning advanced techniques. Some classes are more “for the fun of it” and are an exciting way to explore more of what pickleball has to offer outside of the core game. All of our pros are certified instructors who can help you bring your game to the next level.
Our leagues are a great way to get your weekly dose of competition! For a one time entrance fee, you can be ensured of a series of challenging games in an energizing environment. League night has a strong community component as well as players and pros gather after the games to reflect on performance and talk strategy and skill development. It’s a great time to play, to learn, and to make new friends.
Our Crush Members enjoy open play organized into skill levels by our pros every day from 6 AM to 11 AM. For $30 on weekdays and $38 on weekends, you can join the fun for a day - just walk on in and talk to our front desk staff to pay and get oriented. The drop in fee includes unlimited coffee and soft drinks all morning.

An Outdoor Surface, Indoor
Our courts are the same surface that you have come to expect from outdoor open plays all over the US, except ours are branded, cleaned, and maintained to a very high standard. Our nets are kept to consistent standard dimensions as well. We use outdoor balls, despite being indoors.
Same Conditions, Year Round
At Crush Yard, you never get rained out, it’s never too windy, the lighting is always perfect, and the temperature is always the same. We have perfect play conditions every day of the year so you can concentrate on developing and demonstrating your best possible game rather than fighting glare or worrying about slipping on a wet spot.
