Pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis into one exciting sport that is fun for teenagers and adults of all ages. The game is played on a badminton-sized court, indoors or outdoors, with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center to promote an ease of play, and players use hard paddles to volley a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball).  This is a sport you really must try!

So, come join in the action and RELISH the game!  Don't dilly-dally, come join us!
