Pickleball was invented in 1965 by three dads whose kids were bored with their usual summertime activities on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, WA. Today, Pickleball is played by approximately 2.46 million kids, teenagers and seniors alike. It is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net; and is played with a paddle and a plastic ball. If you are interested in playing or learning, please stop by on Monday, Wednesday or Fridays at 9:00 a.m.—12:00 noon.
