Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. 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. Pickleball, played with a paddle and plastic ball, is played indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Court rental is $5 per hour and a half per person. . Leave a message for Michelle Burns at CRC if you have questions about pickleball.
CRC pro shop sells Pickleball paddles and balls. The paddle is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping-pong paddle. The balls are plastic with holes through it like a Wiffle ball. Loaner paddles are available from CRC front desk.
