Pickleball!

Pickleball!! It's the fastest growing racket sport in America - inviting players of all ages and skill levels to join in the fun. Come out and play! You don't need to have equipment or know how to play the game. We will loan you equipment and teach you! Pickleball is not only a game in which you are active but also a very social and fun sport. Bring a chair, some water, spectate, or play. When you aren't playing you can help gather balls, referee, or just sit and talk with your new friends. So don't be shy, come on over and bring a friend!! ~ Peg Davison Pickleball Ambassador, Canon City Region
