The Groveport Parks & Recreation Department will be introducing the growing sport of Pickleball at the Groveport Recreation Center.
WHO: All ages
WHAT: 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 wiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. The game can be played as singles (one person per side) or doubles (two people per side). It is easy for beginners to learn, and can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
If you are interested in playing or learning more about the sport of Pickleball, please complete a Pickleball Interest Form which are available at the Fitness Center Desk. Once our staff thinks that we have enough interest, we will purchase the necessary equipment and schedule some Pickleball demonstration times. Our goal is to initially schedule some drop-in time for Pickleball. Hopefully interest increase so that leagues & tournaments may eventually be offered.
MORE INFO: The United States Pickleball Association has an outstanding website that contains rules, videos, photos that will help you better understand the sport of Pickleball.
