Pickleball

Yes…Pickleball! This game was created in the backyard of Washington Congressman Joel Prichard. He wanted an activity for his kids that lazy summer of 1965. Since then it has spread throughout the USA, Canada and many countries around the world. It is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, especially in Senior Communities.

Pickleball provides plenty of exercise, eye-hand coordination and you do not have to be “super athletic” to play. This is a game of strategy, for both men and women of all ages.

or more information on Pickleball, visit: USAPA.org.

Open play is designed as “drop-in” play. You come when you can, leave when you must. Tennis shoes need to be worn. Racquets and balls will be provided. See you on the court!
