Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis. A great way to get indoor exercise with others, pickleball is easy for beginners to learn but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

Games are held on three courts in our gymnasium.

Reserving a spot for each session is recommended.
