Introducing our incredible founder and owner, Frank Milillo, a true pickleball enthusiast and a driving force behind the sport's growth in Rockville Centre. With a remarkable 27-year background in tennis, Frank has channeled his passion into the fastest-growing sport in the United States.

However, it's not just the physical aspect that captivates people; the social aspect of the game holds equal importance. Frank understands this and fosters a community where connections are formed both on and off the court.
Thanks to Frank's dedication and some pivotal meetings with Rockville Centre Mayor Francis X. Murray and RVC Recreation Center Superintendent Karen Polito, pickleball has flourished in Rockville Centre. The support received from local authorities has turned Frank's vision into a thriving reality.
The demand for pickleball exceeded Frank's wildest expectations. The leagues filled up rapidly, leaving everyone exhilarated. Such was the overwhelming response that Frank anticipates the same enthusiasm for the upcoming session. The collaboration with the Rec Center has been seamless, providing an ideal environment for this incredible sport that spans generations.

HISTORY OF PICKLEBALL
Let's dive into the fascinating history of pickleball. Invented back in 1965, this dynamic sport combines elements from tennis, badminton, and racquetball. Its debut took place at the iconic John A. Anderson Recreation Center, where two portable courts were set up upstairs and one downstairs, creating the perfect playing environment.
Pickleball is played on a court similar in size to badminton (20×44 feet), using solid paddles made of wood or composite material. The ball used is a polymer ball, resembling a wiffle ball. Notably, the net is set at a slightly lower height compared to tennis, with 42 inches at the ends and 36 inches in the middle. Games are played to 11 points, with a requirement of a 2-point winning margin.
Join us for an unforgettable season of pickleball, where camaraderie, skill, and sheer excitement come together. Don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of this incredible sport. Register today and secure your spot in our 2023-2024 leagues. Get ready to serve, rally, and celebrate victory in the thrilling world of pickleball!
