Join us for Pickleball!
 
Clinic

Join the Fun Club and learn about American’s fastest growing sport.  Pickleball is like tennis, but played on a smaller court.  Pickleball is very easy to learn (you serve underhand) and is fun for young and old alike!  It’s great exercise, but low impact.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about a “new” sport that currently has almost 200,000 people playing across the United States.  This Clinic is open to the public and all ages are welcome! 

The United States Pickleball Association (usapa.org) indicates that 40 new venues each month are springing up across the country and predict 500 new venues in 2014; California, Arizona, Florida and Utah lead the way. In fact, at the 2012 World Senior Games in St. George, Utah, the largest contingent of participants in an individual sport – almost 600 – were Pickleballers. The Games featured 19 countries, 27 different sports and 10,000 athletes. The 10,000 participants represented a slightly larger contingent than this past summer’s London Olympic Games.   

 

A note of caution – if you show up to play, you may very well become addicted to Pickleball!
