Pickleball is a paddle sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a double's badminton court with a similar net to tennis, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a hollow polymer or plastic-like wiffle ball. Players have a choice of playing in a singles or doubles match. This is a great game for all ages! No experience necessary. Equipment is available at the YMCA.

Members may reserve their Pickleball time up to 48 hours in advance to guarantee availability when you arrive.
