Pryor Paddle Tennis Courts

Platform tennis, or known to some as pickleball, is a slight variation from the traditional tennis game as it covers less of the court and is played with a paddle instead of a racket. The court is surrounded by tightly strung wire fencing allowing players to keep the ball in play after bouncing on the court and hitting the screens.

 

As for the point system, it is quite similar to tennis except you only get one serve and you are allowed to play the ball off the fences.

We offer two heated, well-lit courts from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., located 100 yards south of the Telluride Ski & Golf Club House at The Peaks Resort & Spa.

 

A small clubhouse with equipment, lockers and restrooms is available. In the wintertime, you may access the platform tennis court from The Peaks ski trail, 200 yards from the top of Lift 1. Reservations are not required, but a code is necessary for access so please give us a call.

 

For additional platform tennis rules, visit the official American Platform Tennis Association website.
