Pickleball: One of the fastest growing sports in North America
Pickleball is a racket sport in which two to four players use 15-inch long solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a wiffle ball back and forth over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a Badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime, but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all skill levels. The game can be played in singles or doubles.
Drop-in classes for adults and kids 12 and older are offered at the Pleasant Grove recreation center, 547 S.

The balls and paddles are provided, so you do not need to take equipment.
Two separate four-week clinics for kids ages eight to 14 are also available, one in April and one in May on Wednesdays. The cost for the four classes is $37.50. Registration must be procured through Pleasant Grove Recreation. Participants will have the opportunity to purchase an aluminum core paddle and ball for only $30.
