Pickleball at Fairview Park

A combination of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, pickleball is played with a paddle racket and a plastic ball on a court smaller than a tennis court.

All levels welcome. Players set up and take down nets.

Hempfield recCEnter members with a purchased pickleball card must reserve a time (four-hour slots) and pick up the equipment (FREE) at Hempfield recCenter to play at Fairview Park.

Nonmembers will incur a $20 rental fee plus pay $8 per person. Equipment must be returned to Hempfield recCenter within four hours.

COMING SOON! – Disc Golf Course

West Hempfield Township, Lancaster County Disc Golf Club and Hempfield recCenter will be constructing an 18-hole disc golf course at Fairview Park.

Construction will begin the spring of 2021. Volunteers and sponsors are needed to help make this happen.
