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.  We will play on an indoor court. Sneakers are required. We will provide pickle ball paddles to beginners, returning participants are asked to provide their own paddle.
