Millennium Place drop-in pickleball FAQs
1. Why do the number of nets at Millennium Place decrease at 8:45 a.m. from five to three during drop-in pickleball?Permanent link to Why do the number of nets at Millennium Place decrease at 8:45 a.m. from five to three during drop-in pickleball?
Millennium Place offers spontaneous use (where any guest can drop-in and use the facility to play one of our core sports) from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the gymnasium. To accommodate all sports and users, half of the gym is required.
Offering spontaneous use in the gymnasium from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. is a service level we have committed to when people purchase their Millennium Card or admission passes.
To maintain this service level, the gymnasium is set up for spontaneous use at 9 a.m. and includes 3 courts for pickleball use (similar to how space is maintained for pickleball during advertised times).
2. Why doesn't the curtain in the gymnasium at Millennium Place stay down for pickleball all of the time?Permanent link to Why doesn't the curtain in the gymnasium at Millennium Place stay down for pickleball all of the time?
To make the best use of space during spontaneous use times, it is important for activities to naturally flow in the open gymnasium. The curtain is down when a space is being used exclusively, or is advertised in our drop-in guide for a specific activity, like drop-in pickleball. Guests must be participating in the advertised or exclusive activity to be in the curtained area.
