Pickleball Volunteer - Winter / Spring 2023

Welcome

PICKLEBALL VOLUNTEER WINTER / SPRING 2023

Thank you signing up to volunteer with Sportable's Pickleball Program! 

 

Pickleball, the fastest growing sport in the country, combines many elements of tennis, badminton, racquetball, and ping-pong. The game is played on a badminton-size court with two to four players, paddles, and a ball similar to a wiffle ball. Pickleball is easy to learn and welcomes beginners of all ages and abilities. It can also develop into a fast-paced game of strategy and precision for experienced players. Participants will learn court mobility, the different strokes and when to use them, and the rules and scoring of the game—all while improving strength and cardiovascular health in a fun group instruction environment.
