Flat water SUPing is a healthy, low-impact, and environmentally friendly paddle sport that appeals to both the young and the young-at-heart. Space is limited to 10 participants, so pre-registration is required. Instructor: Audrey DeLong.

SUP Yogalates Class at the Aquatic Center
This is a class for both the beginner and the expert. Instructor Audrey DeLong will let students get familiar with the SUP boards and the yoga and Pilates poses separately, before combining the sports on the water. The paddle board makes a great yoga mat and the extra balance required by being on the water intensifies the yoga/Pilates routine. Unlike surfboards, SUP boards are much more stable. This is sure to be a great workout class and one you can drop in for or take all summer. Wear the same clothes you would wear to a regular yoga or fitness class or if it's warm you can wear your bathing suit. Remember to use sunscreen. SUP boards and paddles provided. Limited to the first 12 people to enroll.

Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court (which is smaller than a tennis court). The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffleball. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. usapa.org/offficialrules
Originally invented as a backyard pastime, pickleball is now an organized sport represented by national and international governing bodies. Since its inception in 1965, pickleball has spread across the United States and into Canada. It is now beginning to spread around the world. The United States Pickleball Association estimates there are more than 100,000 active pickleball players in that country alone. In Canada, where the game is still relatively new, there are already more than 5,000 players in just four provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario. Meanwhile new organizations like the Singapore Pickleball Association and the All India Pickleball Association are bringing the game to Asia and beyond.
Join the craze and have some fun with the Redding Pickleballers on the South City Park Tennis Courts, 1250 Parkview Avenue, Redding, CA 96001.
