Residents of Lake Barrington Shores enjoy the recently constructed Sports Complex. Home to tennis, pickle ball, platform tennis, bocce, basketball, and a playground there is surely something here to delight everyone!
Exclusive use of 8 tennis courts (clay and asphalt). Residents can become members of the tennis club or just enjoy an occasional game with family member, neighbor or a guest.
There is a platform tennis court that includes two courts and a warming hut as the game is played during the colder season. Platform tennis is a variation of tennis played on a wooden platform enclosed with chicken wire in which the players hit a rubber ball with wooden paddles following the same basic rules as tennis except that only one serve is permitted and balls can be played off the back and side fences.
Pickle Ball is another very popular racquet ball game at Lake Barrington Shores and is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special Pickle ball paddles, made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials. The ball used is similar to a wiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and wiffle ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their skills.
