Adult Activities INTRODUCTION TO PICKLEBALL FOR ADULTS Spring 2019 Session! Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. We will play outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Players also enjoy the social aspect of the game and being active as part of a healthy lifestyle. Instruction provided by ADK Pickleball Club.
