Pickleball

#100008

Never heard of pickleball? Well, you’re probably not alone. But know that you’re missing out on one the fastest growing sports in the U.S. The game is played on a court about 1/3 the size of a tennis court using a modified style net, paddles and whiffle ball. It contains elements of tennis, racquetball, badminton and ping pong, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular. As well as being easy to learn, the sport can be played at almost any age, so even seniors can get the benefit of regular exercise. (6 Week Sessions)

So, what are you waiting for? Play pickleball for yourself and see what all the excitement is about.

Loaner paddles available upon request.

Ages All ages welcome!
