The Ken Mercer Sports Park is an award winning activity center in the heart of Pleasanton with sports facilities for all ages and all skill levels to keep the entire community fit, healthy and active. Several sports take place here including many amenities like baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, basketball courts, bocce, volleyball, handball, football and even skateboarding.
Here you’ll be able to find and join a number of sports leagues, programs and affiliations where being active, enjoying sports and getting to know your neighbours happens daily. The men’s basketball league runs from fall season right through until the end of spring. There are separate leagues for novices and intermediate teams and you only need six players to register a team. You can play – or even just come along and watch some great slam dunking on Wednesday and Thursday nights between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Volleyball is also a popular sport here to keep adults healthy and active and the leagues run at the same time as the basketball league does. Games take place on Monday nights from 7 p.m. and you’ll see three classes here of novice, intermediate and advanced.
The Ken Mercer Sports Center also caters to the younger generation by holding summer camps and sports including archery, baseball, cheerleader classes, volleyball and softball.
The youth programs are open to all ages and all skill sets. The recreational youth basketball program runs right through the summer and offers plenty to do for the children into the school summer break.
Even the very young are catered to at the sports center with a gingerbread pre-school club where the very little ones can enjoy crèche facilities and recreational games.
No sports center can be complete without tennis courts – tennis is a passion among Californians and just across the street from Ken Mercer Sports Park, is the Pleasanton Tennis Complex. The complex includes 10 professional courts and even runs a special summer school camp so kids can get prepared for a possible future at Flushing Meadows, Melbourne or Wimbledon.
The Ken Mercer Sports Park truly is an award-winning place for the entire family and located centrally, just north of downtown Pleasanton.
