Can You Say "Pickleball?"
Now available 4 days a week! Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
What is Pickleball you ask? Pickleball is a paddle sport which combines the elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and uses wood, composite or fiberglass paddles. The game is played on a badminton court with nets lowered to 34" at the center. Easy for beginners to learn, and can develop into a quick, fast-paced game for experienced players. Just show up and enjoy the fun as all equipment is provided by the center.
