Pickleball comes to the Worcester County Recreation Center

            Worcester County Department of Recreation & Parks is excited to offer Pickleball for the first time this winter! This drop-in program will be played indoors at the Worcester County Recreation Center on a badminton-sized court and with a slightly modified tennis net.  

            If you don't know what Pickleball is, it's a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can easily develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Pickleball combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. The game is played with a hard paddle and a smaller version of a wiffle ball.  All equipment will be provided. 
            Drop-In Pickleball will be held on Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. beginning on January 7.  The cost is $3 per session or $25 for the 12 week quarter.
            The great thing about Pickleball is that it takes such little time to learn how to play. After your first twenty minutes of instruction, you are well on your way to enjoying a new recreational sport. Pickleball is great for all ages!
