Pickleball - Adults Register View Cart

Pickle ball is a paddle sport played on a badminton-sized court and can be described as a cross between tennis and ping-pong. It can be played as doubles or singles. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.  Sneakers are required. We will provide pickle ball paddles to beginners, returning participants are asked to provide their own paddle. 
Space is limited on a first come, first serve basis.  
The pickleball courts are located at 61 Springfield Rd.

Beginner: little to no experience 

Intermediate: mid-level in serving and volleying, somewhat inconsistent play.
Advanced: fast-paced challenging game. Consistent serve and ability to sustain play at the net.
Mixed: a blend of beginner/Intermediate/Advanced.
