Pickleball

Our community has fallen in love with Pickleball.  We have built two courts behind the fitness center, one by the Island Sound pool and now these four courts.  It is a fun game that doesn’t require the running and fitness that tennis requires.

Pickleball Instructor

Several of the community residents that are experienced players lead a clinic for beginners so they can learn to play.  J and I have been wanting to learn and I was off on Monday, so we went to the clinic.

New Pickleball Courts

There were twelve people that showed for the clinic.  If you are not familiar with Pickleball the court is smaller then a tennis court, play with smaller rackets and a plastic wiffle type ball.  All serves are underhand and the ball must bounce two after the serve.

J getting new instructions

There was some instructions, hitting the plastic ball back and forth, then a “game” where we learned how to serve, score and chase balls. We were instructed and playing for about 2 hours.

Have you tried to learn a new sport or game lately?
