Join the craze and have some fun! 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. Beginners welcome anytime.
