Try this increasingly popular sport that will provide you with a great workout while offering a very social and competitive game.
About the Game
Pickleball is played in the gym using a perforated plastic ball. The game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced game for experienced players.
When playing pickleball, each player uses a pickleball paddle, which is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping-pong paddle. The ball itself is unique with holes through it like a whiffle ball. The ball travels at 1/3 the speed of a tennis ball and is usually white or yellow in color. The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle. All equipment is provided.
When and Where
Pickleball will be set-up weekly in the gym. See our monthly gym schedule for days and times.
