Beginner Pickleball Lessons

Get into the swing of things with Joyce Hughes at our day clinics designed for newcomers to pickleball. You'll learn the rules, terminology, scoring, and then hit the court for some hands-on play. Activity clothes are recommended, and while bringing a paddle is not necessary, feel free to bring one if you have it. Come and discover this rapidly growing sport!
