What is Pickleball: Pickleball is a simple paddle game played by 2-4 players with a paddle which is slightly larger than a table tennis paddle. The ball looks much like a wiffle ball. The court is 20-foot-wide and forty-four-feet long, divided by a net which resembles a tennis court net. Unlike tennis, the learning curve for this sport is very short. It has had an unbelievable growth in popularity in the last couple of years. Pickleball can be played by every member of the family, regardless of age or gender

Class Instruction: The first couple of weeks will consist of how to play and the rules and procedures, technique and tips, and instructional drills to develop proper technique and skills. This will lead to the last few weeks playing games against each other and improving on their technique and skills
