Pickleball-Monday and Fridays

Pickleball is a cross between badminton and tennis. It is played on a badminton sized court that is 20×44, compared to a tennis court which is 36×78 and has a tennis-like net that is 34″ high at center court. It is played with what looks to be an over-sized ping pong paddle. We have 3 pickleball courts laid out on the gym floor at the WLCC. This game can be played with 2 players, but most often is played with 4. Players of all skill levels are welcome, first-timers to advanced. This is an incredibly popular activity with Seniors as the smaller court size and whiffle ball are much easier on joints while still providing great exercise. We have nets, balls and paddles. Wear comfortable clothes and clean-soled gym shoes; join us and have fun!

This class meets Monday, Thursday and Friday. and is free; registration is not necessary. We have a morning and afternoon group.

Note: Class will not meet the following dates: 11/23/17-11/24/17, 12/25/17, 12/28/17-12/29/17, 1/1/18 and 5/28/18.
