PICKLE BALL


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!

 

Pickleball players have been active over the summer, with outdoor play at Tolmie Park on Monday afternoons and indoor play at Commonwealth Place on Tuesday afternoons.  A highlight was a series of clinics at Tolmie Park conducted by a Guest Coach who provided excellent instruction on more advanced strategies and skills.
