Pickleball Expansion in Placer Valley

New Pickleball Courts at Johnson Ranch Sports Club in 2022

Have you heard the news? Johnson Ranch will be converting seven tennis courts to 24 lighted pickleball courts starting during the first quarter of 2022. The courts expect to open for play around April or May this year. As part of the pickleball expansion, Johnson Ranch plans to develop Spare Time interclub pickleball leagues to promote level-specific competitive play.

Amy Sanford, Spare Time Sports/Johnson Ranch's new Pickleball Director, expresses her excitement for pickleball's growth in Placer Valley. "The sport of pickleball is growing by leaps and bounds all over the United States and our region is no different. As the pickleball director, I plan to teach a pickleball 101 class each week free to our community to bring awareness to the amazing sport."

Amy will also teach weekly skills and drills, have pickleball leagues/ladders, juniors program, pickleball fitness (yoga, Pilates, and weight training), and pickleball referee training.

Spare Time Sports has plans for a national pro tournament tour coming in September and plans for their own Johnson Ranch tournament this summer.

Placer Valley Tourism is excited to watch the sport of pickleball explode here in our region!
