Salida, Buena Vista, and the surrounding area
As a group of passionate and active pickleball players in beautiful Chaffee County, Colorado, we have accomplished much over the past few years. In 2018, partnering with the City of Salida, we obtained a GOCO grant and built eight shared-use pickleball courts at Centennial Park in Salida. In 2022, partnering with the Town of Buena Vista, we independently raised funds though private donations and small grants, and built six beautiful dedicated pickleball courts at River Park.
Our club is now large
enough to sustain regular summertime and wintertime pickleball activities. We have open play for a wide range of players and skill levels, including local residents, club members, and visitors who spend months at a time in our beautiful valley. We host a spring indoor tournament in Buena Vista and a fall outdoor tournament in Salida. Our tournaments are some of the best small-town tournaments in Colorado!
In spring and summer we hold "Learn to Play" Clinics in Salida and BV, which bring new players to the sport and to our club. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of pickleball and social activities to players of all ability levels.
In the winter we have indoor venues in both Salida and Buena Vista. Winters in the valley are mild enough that there are stretches of time when we can enjoy our outdoor courts amid a backdrop of the snow-covered Rocky Mountains.
I invite you to join this fun group as a member, a volunteer, a sponsor, or a social friend, while you learn to enjoy the “fastest growing sport in America.”P2P Pickleball Club President 2019
Welcome to Chaffee County, Colorado!
The Colorado mountain towns of Salida and Buena Vista are nestled in the beautiful Arkansas River Valley, literally in the "Heart of the Rockies," about 2 hours from Colorado Springs and 2.5 hours from Denver. Our towns are a welcoming Western retreat for everyone, from the solo outdoors adventure-seeker to families who wish to ‘Play and Stay’ in the glorious Rocky Mountains. Chaffee County has more 14,000 -ft mountains than any county in the state and the Gold Medal Arkansas River provides outstanding fishing, rafting, kayaking, and SUPing. The mountains offer miles of beautiful hiking and biking trails. Wintertime brings snowboarding, skiing, and snowmobiling. Salida and Buena Vista are growing towns with galleries, musical venues, and many seasonal festivals. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, you will find something to make your stay a memorable one! And in your spare time . . . join us on our pickleball courts for some pickleball fun!
