Pickleball

Introduction to pickleball sponsored by RVCC and Age friendly Riverview

What is Pickleball? 

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It is played with oversized paddles, which are larger than ping pong paddles. Plastic balls with holes in them are hit. The court is badminton-sized (36 inch high), and you can play singles or doubles (2 players per side). 

One game can take 15-20 minutes and continues until someone hits 11 points. Players often play 3 or 4 games. 

There are many benefits, including an aerobic workout, it tones muscles, improves agility, and you make new friends!
