What is Pickle-ball you ask? Pickle-ball is a sport played on a badminton-sized court with special Pickle-ball paddles, made of wood. The ball is similar to a whiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their athletic ability. Join us in the gym 9 a.m.-11 a.m., on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
