Pickleball

Try your hand at a game that’s part tennis, part badminton. Named Pickleball after the co-inventors’ dog “Pickles” is an amazingly fun game that people who have or racquet sports experience pick up quickly. One of the best things about a pickleball game is that even if you’ve never played a racquet sport in your life, you can be playing and having a blast within the first hour. To play pickleball, 2-4 players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a whiffle ball, over a net. All equipment is provided by the YMCA. All abilities and ages are welcome. Gymnasium will be share with other activites if all 3 pickleball courts are not being used.
