Adult Pickleball

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Pickleball is a sport in which two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.

Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels. 

A low-impact sport, pickleball can be good for your health. Regular exercise burns calories, improves mental health and increases self-esteem. Pickleball helps with balance and agility while it also offers the same benefits of other regular exercise. These include reducing your risk of heart attack and chronic disease, toning your muscles and increasing your energy.

There are several parks with dual pickleball courts available for use.

This winter/spring there are several beginner pickleball classes available.
