PICKLEBALL – Mon & Wed @ 4:00 pm & Sun @ 2 pm
PICKLEBALL is Played on a court roughly one-third the size of a badminton court. Pickleball uses a low net, graphite paddles, and a lightweight plastic ball (all available at the Club). It combines elements of tennis, racquetball, badminton, and table tennis. The skill set is like many paddle or racket sports, and the learning curve is almost non-existent. You can get on a court and play even if you’ve never heard of the sport. As well as being easy to learn, the sport can be played at almost any age. (The USAPA National Championships has a category for men and women over 85, with the oldest player over 100). Pickleball is a great sport for all-around fitness. It exercises all the major muscle groups, provides a cardio workout, and improves dexterity, mobility, agility, and balance. Here’s a link to the sign-up sheet: https://signup.com/go/WSrioHS
If you have heard about this new game and have been curious, come out and see how it’s played. We have a great group of seniors who are friendly and more than willing to teach you how to get started. With this beautiful Indian summer, I know you would rather be outside, but it’s not going to last much longer, I hear. So, drop in, and give Pickleball a try. If you are doing more than watching, please go to the signup sheet so our pickle ballers know if they have enough people to play. We only need four (4).
Could you give us a try? It’s a lot of fun!
