CURIOUS ABOUT PICKLEBALL?
DID YOU KNOW?
Pickleball is considered the fastest growing sport in America today. Pickleball is a fast-paced sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. It is appropriate for all ages and skill levels: it is relatively quick and easy to learn to play and can also be quite challenging and fast-paced at the more competitive level.
PICKLEBALL IS FOR ALL AGES
Pickleball is not reserved for just the 50+ age group. Athletes from PGA golf pros (Michael Putnam & his San Diego Padre teammates) to high school softball players have picked up the game as a cross training tool to improve their foot speed and hand eye coordination.
Now is the perfect time for you to give pickleball a try.
