Frequently Asked Questions

Pickleball is a paddleball sport (i.e. like a racket sport), a hybrid between tennis and ping pong. For more details on this sport and its history, please refer to the explanation on the USA Pickleball website.

You can find the basic summary as well as the official rule books for Pickleball on the USA Pickleball website.

The Folsom Pickleball Club members play at Lembi Comunity Park in Folsom. You can find the park location on this Google Map link. The park has 12 dedicated pickleball courts and can be lighted for use in the evenings.

The pickleball courts at Lembi Park are public courts. You may drop in to play any time, and you do not need to be a member of the Folsom Pickleball Club to play there. There are certain days when the club has a special event, many courts may be taken.

You can use PlayTime Scheduler to find out who may be playing there and which level the players are.

If you live near the Folsom area (in Sacramento, California) and want to learn how to play Pickleball, you can look at our Calendar for the Introduction to Pickleball event, normally scheduled on the first Saturday of each month at Lembi Park, Folsom, CA.

You must sign up for the intro session on PlayTime Scheduler (required free account registration). The class will provide paddles and balls, you just need to wear tennis shoes ready for action.

For recreational play, you can just rate yourself. One way is to use the Definitions of Player Skill Ratings rubric by USA Pickleball Association.

For a more official rating, you will need to participate in national tournaments to build up your skill rating. You can find national tournaments on the USA Pickleball website.

The best way to find other players is to use PlayTime Scheduler. There you can see who has scheduled a play session on which day and time and at which park location. When in doubt, you can always add a note or ask a question in the session that you're interested in. You can also create a session yourself where others can join you. Note that players don't have to be a club member to play on public courts such as Lembi Park in Folsom, CA.

The Folsom Pickleball Club offers weekly drill classes free of charge for club members (in the mornings as well as evenings). Our drill classes are very popular and often filled up quickly, so you may want to sign up one or more weeks in advance.

You can check our Calendar for the classes and sign up on PlayTime Scheduler. You must be a club member to participate in these classes.

To participate in any event posted on the club Calendar, you will need to sign up on PlayTime Scheduler. For special events like tournaments, the registration will be posted on the HOME page.

If you need to remove your name from an event that you have signed up on Playtime Scheduler, you can remove your name there and add a note to let the organizer know. You don't need to contact the club.
