Is There Open Play?
We don't have regularly scheduled open play at the Santa Monica Pickleball Center but try out our most popular class - liveball.Liveball is a super fast, exciting, group pickleball workout - and it's a great way to meet players in the local area.
What is Liveball?
We don’t have drop in here but we recommend our Liveball Classes instead. Liveball is a super fast, exciting, group pickleball workout .
Here’s how it works — liveball is a doubles format game the court is divided into a champion and a challenger side.
Points are played in doubles pairs - there are no serves or returns. Instead, a dedicated feeder puts the ball into play from the side of the court.
The goal of the game is to make it over to the champion side. Players get there by winning 3 points before losing 2. In 90 minutes, you can expect to burn hundreds more calories than a typical open play game and the best part? You don’t have to set up a game or keep score.
You can sign up on our site, or app ‘Santa Monica Pickleball Center’ or on the phone 310-486-0726.
