Pickleball is a game played on a badminton or tennis 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-paced, competitive game for experienced players. This is not a league...come when you can...just drop in. Participants MUST CHECK-IN at front desk for indoor pickleball. Call the senior office at 763-512-2339 with questions.
