Pickleball + Apres
Do you want to know what all the fuss is about Pickleball? Well so do we, so let's give it a try! Maybe it will leave us all dill-lighted...
What is pickleball?
"Pickleball is a sport that combines elements of tennis, ping pong, and badminton into one family-friendly game. It can be played singles or doubles on a court that looks like a tennis court but is much smaller. Instead of tennis rackets, you use paddles and a plastic ball."
Here are a few very serious educational videos:

What to wear, bring and expect
Wear athletic clothing, stretchy breathable fabrics, maybe what you would wear to play tennis or badminton. Required: proper footwear! Athletic, running or tennis shoes should be worn. The courts are inside so no worries about the weather or temperature.
Bring a paddle if you have one! Definitely bring your water bottle. Maybe a change of clothes if you want to apres in dry gear.
Expect some physical challenge, and a whole lot of fun! There are 3 courts, 4 players on each court. Kim and Sarah will give us an approximately 1-hour lesson (with rotations of players to practice the skills taught) and then the remainder of the time will be game-play fun. After, we can head over to The Kingston House for some complimentary appetizers!
