Local Pickleball Guide – Boise, Idaho

It’s no surprise Idaho is a pickleball haven since major paddle manufacturer, Selkirk, was created in Hayden. The company’s name itself was inspired by the Selkirk Mountains, which travel between southeastern British Columbia, the Idaho Panhandle and eastern Washington.

Several hours south of Hayden is the capital of Boise, where there are pickleball courts a-plenty and players ready to test their skills. Join in if you have the opportunity to explore this growing hot spot!
