Pickleball

Try out the fastest-growing sport around. Similar to ping pong, badminton, and tennis, Pickleball is a fun, active game that can be mastered by anyone from youth to senior citizens. It is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches, and uses a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. We will demonstrate how to play and teach you the rules! We have paddles and balls to use and players do not need to have their own partner. New players will be taught by the Pickleball Supervisor and the court is open to both novice and experienced players!
