Pickle Ball is played on a badminton-size court with the net about the height of a tennis net. We play singles or doubles, depending on the number of people who come. Each person uses a paddle a bit bigger than a ping pong paddle and a wiffle ball. The rules are similar to ping pong. It’s not a strenuous game and we’re there mostly for the fun.
Please wear safety glasses when playing pickle ball. If you do not wear glasses, please consider purchasing a pair of safety glasses. They are available through local sports shops. Your eyesight is very important!
The first session for the fall will have our regular 1:30 to 3:30 time spot and starts on Tuesday, September 17th. The drop-in cost is $3 per person payable prior to the start of your games. Please remember that as of OCTOBER, Commonwealth will no longer be providing pickleballs for our use. I have been collecting a $2 fee in advance so that we can purchase our own orange pickleballs. Many members have already dropped off their $2 at the Tuesday sessions.
