In August 2017 the Association completed the installation of new permanent Pickleball Courts at East Port. The Pickleball Courts have four lighted courts that have quickly become a very popular in Canyon Lake. Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It is played with a paddle and a baseball size wiffleball. Generally, play is doubles. 

The new Pickleball Courts enhance the community by providing yet another amenity for the residents of Canyon Lake to enjoy. The courts are open to all Association members. Visit the Pickleball Courts page to see more about the courts.
