Pickleball is a sport that is growing in popularity all over the country. This is similar to tennis but less intense due to a smaller court, lighter and slower ball, and lower net.
We are offering free open play at the Community Activities Center starting in September. Pre-registration is required.
The new Pickleball Club will meet Thursdays from 1:00-3:00pm from September 26-October 31 and November 7-December 12. For additional information contact Gail Ham at 540-433-9168 or Gail.Ham@harrisonburgva.gov. This is a free program.
There will be an interactive introduction at the Cecil F. Gilkerson Community Activities Center on September 19 from 1:30pm-3:30pm on September 19 presented by the Pickleball Club of New Market.
