July Session Beginning Pickleball 2022

July Session Starts on Monday 11th.   Come learn Pickleball, the fastest growing sport in the world.  Pickleball is easy to learn (but difficult to master).  It’s a lifetime sport and a great way to get some exercise.  Beginner lessons start ( to be arranged).  Come early and watch the club play that you will be preparing for.  The courts are just north of the football field and east of the high school.  If there are weather or court resurfacing delays the sessions will be moved to the following Mondays and Wednesdays.  The fee is $40.00/person for all 4 lessons and is open to anyone 18 or over and willing to commit to all 4 lessons.  Class size is limited to the first 12 to sign up.

About The Instructor

Mary Mills and Harlan Lundstrom

If you've never played Pickleball before, this clinic is designed for you! Taught by experienced instructors Mary Mills and Harlan Lundstrom. This clinic will cover the basics of Pickleball rules, terminology, primary skills, coordination, and more. Indoor Pickleball Season is underway and once you have completed the 4 beginning lessons you will be able to play three days a week. This sport is a combination of ping-pong, badminton, and tennis yet is much easier to learn than any of those three. Attendance is a very important component to achieving the ability to enjoy this great sport.
