For Ages 8 and Up
Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-pasted competitive game for experienced players.
Whether you have been playing for years and need a new place to get back into it or looking to try something new the Y has got you covered. We offer opportunities at many of our Y branches for members to drop-in and play in pick-up games.
Pickleball is a great aerobic workout without adding too much stress or strain on joints and muscles. It is also amazing for raising endorphins that are useful in elevating self-esteem and combating depression. Pickleball is the perfect sport for all ages and skill levels it is the sport you never have to stop playing! Check the schedule for the days and times it is offered at a YMCA near you.
“Pickleball has just exploded in popularity because it’s easy to learn, very social and fun for all ages, whether you’re playing with kids, young adults or seniors.”
– Jill Adams, Hays Communities YMCA
