Racket Sports

Tennis

Rumbling bald resort features four lighted hard surface courts for guests use that are marked for both tennis and pickleball. A group of dedicated community members works together to create an active tennis schedule all year long. Visiting guests are welcome to join in any of the group play sessions offered each week.

Tennis Group Play
Members and Guests welcome. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the Courts starting at 1:00pm. You will need to present your valid POA Card or RBR Guest Card at the time of play. Call 828.694.3005 for details.


Pickleball

One of the fastest-growing sports in America. Pickleball is a racket sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. For more information, please contact the Wellness Center at 828.694.3005.

Pickleball Group Play
Members and Guests welcome. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday on the Courts starting at 10:00am. We have an active group of members that play regularly these days and they have been known to keep a few extra supplies for those interested in playing or learning how to play the game. The Wellness Center also has racket rentals available for members and guests. Rentals are $3 per racket. However, if a guest pays $5 to play in the round-robin, then the rental is free. You will need to present your valid POA Card or RBR Guest Card at the time of play. For more information, please call the Wellness Center at 828.694.3005 or email wellness@rumblingbald.com.
