The fastest growing sport in North America!  Pickleball was created with one thing in mind: fun!  It was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you're 5 or 85 or somewhere in between.  A combination of table tennis, badminton and tennis, Pickleball is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special paddles (similar to table tennis), made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials.  The ball used is similar to a wiffleball, but slightly smaller.  The lower net and wiffleball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to play.  Veteran players will show new players how to play, including rules, how to hit the ball, etc.

What to Bring: Comfortable clothes, indoor tennis shoes that are non-marking soles and provide stability for side-to-side movement.  Also, bring along some water to keep you hydrated.  Racquets and balls available for use.
