Pickleball at the J

WE are excited to offer Pickleball at the J. Pickleball is an indoor or outdoor racket/paddle sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn. For those familiar with the game, it can become an exciting, fast-paced competition. It’s great for all levels. Try it yourself and see what all of the buzz is about!
