New Pickleball League for Adults Pickleball

Pickleball, an increasingly popular sport that provides a great workout while offering a very social and competitive game, is here at the Y.

The game is played in the gym using a perforated plastic ball and a paddle which is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping-pong paddle. The game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced game for experienced players.

Matches will be played on Monday at 1:00 pm, Tuesday at 10:00 am and Wednesday at 5:30 pm. Eventually players will need to have their own paddle, but the Y will provide equipment initially.  New players are always welcome. 

The program is free to Members and costs $3 for Program Members.
