Pickleball

Tuesdays, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Pickleball is a fun paddle sport that combines parts of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong using a paddle and plastic ball with holes. The game is appropriate for players of all ages and skill levels. The rules for pickleball are pretty simple, making it a great family sport. It can also be quite the challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.

Open gym night in the Family Life Center for pickleball players of all ages. Two full courts allow participants to rotate into games throughout the night!
