Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the country.  It’s a cross between tennis, table tennis, racquetball and badminton, and it can be enjoyed by all age groups, and played at many different levels.   It’s played on a court the size of a badminton court with a small paddle and a whiffle ball.

The health benefits of pickleball include weight loss, lower blood pressure, and increased stamina. It is a natural progression for tennis and racquetball players who want to continue playing a net sport without the physical stress of those two activities on the knees and other joints.

We have twelve Pickleball courts, and will be organizing play during the week in round robin format, with pick-up games in the afternoons and on weekends.  In addition to the open play, we hope to organize a league for the players who wish to be more competitive.

Pickleball is addictive!  Please come, join the group, make new friends, and have some fun!
