Pickleball Clinic to be held at the Worcester County Recreation Center

Worcester County Recreation & Parks staff announce that USA Pickleball Association Ambassador Vicky Sierber Keefer will be visiting the Worcester County Recreation Center (WCRC) in Snow Hill to put on a Beginner Pickleball Clinic & Demonstration.

Pickleball is a paddle sport created to be fun for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple. 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.

The clinic will take place on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. All equipment will be provided. The cost to participate is $3, and the clinic is open to those ages 18 and older.

“The great thing about Pickleball is that it takes such little time to learn how to play,” Program Manager Trudy Porch said. “After your first twenty minutes of instruction, you are well on your way to enjoying a new recreational sport that’s great for all ages.”
