Pickleball — Open Play

It’s not about Pickles! Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball (waffle ball) and composite paddles. Pickleball is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It can be played in singles or doubles format (like tennis, but on a modified court with modified equipment). All equipment required to play is provided and open play is supported by a Y staff member.

Members $3 / $5 Non-Members

Mondays 1:30-3:30pm Gym
