                   PICKLE BALL LESSONS

 

Come learn the game that is taking America by storm – Pickle ball! It is the fastest growing sport in the country with courts popping up all over the place. People of all ages are able to learn quickly and that is the beauty of the game. It is affordable and can be enjoyed by people of all skill levels and physical abilities.

 

The Athletics and Leisure Services Department has set up three courts inside the Recreation Center Facility for Pickle ball play for all ages and levels. We ask that all patrons coordinate your specific playing schedules and skill levels.

 

We are now offering free lessons for beginners and novice to the public or for those that are interested in playing and wanting to learn the game better. Greg Russell, John Sadler and Lee Hartman would like to extend their expertise to all that are interested; lessons will be on Saturday mornings from 8:00AM – 10:00AM

 

The courts are located at the Mesquite Recreation Center in the West Gymnasium. The Recreation Center will have limited paddles and balls but you are welcome to bring your own equipment if you have the items.

 

Wear comfortable clothing; gym shoes (non-marking soled shoes) bring a sweat towel, and a bottle of water.  Open spots may be available on a “drop in basis only” there are fees included if you do not possess a membership to the facility, please inquire on these with the Recreation Center staff upon entry.
