Pickleball is a combination of ping pong, tennis, and badminton and it’s easy to play for all ages. It is a low impact sport and we have both beginners and intermediate/advance courts and playing times, so no need to worry if you don’t know how to play. The church will provide the needed equipment, so you only need to bring yourself, but even better, you could bring yourself and a friend! No cost to play.
If you have questions, please contact Tina Pfeiffer
