The Mankato Family YMCA has three courts for member use. Courts may be reserved one day in advance for the day of playing time.


Pickleball is a paddle sport played with a whiffle ball on a badminton-sized court and a tennis-style net. A non-volley zone (or kitchen) prevents volleys close to the net, and the serving team cannot volley the return of serve. These unique rules favor players with less mobility and allow senior players to compete successfully with younger competitors. Pickleball is enjoyed by people of all ages and athletic abilities thanks to its ease of play and straightforward rules.

The YMCA offers drop-in Pickleball in the Blue Gym on the following days:


Sunday 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Monday 9:30-12:00 p.m.
Tuesday 8:00-12:00 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Wednesday 9:30-12:00 p.m.
Thursday 8:00-12:00 p.m.
Friday 9:00-2:00 p.m.
