PICKLEBALL ADULT BEGINNER CLINIC (OUTDOORS)
We are excited to announce the addition of Beginner Pickleball classes here in Des Peres. This beginner class will be an introductory class for new pickleball players and/or those who have been playing for a short time. The class will cover safety, equipment, scoring, rules, serve and return, point play and game play. The point play and game play portion will be closely supervised and geared to make players comfortable enough to be able to go out and play on their own. The supervision will mostly be question/support oriented, but some basic concepts and strategy will be introduced. Minimum 4/Maximum 12

ADULT PICKLEBALL OPEN PLAY (INDOORS)
(cancelled until further notice)
Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton size court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can also develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Equipment provided if needed. Come out and enjoy this sport that is rapidly progressing in popularity throughout the country! This is a drop-in program with no registration necessary.
