Pickleball is coming to the Tri-Cities Family YMCA this month.

Pickleball is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball), and wood or composite paddles.

The YMCA and North Ottawa County Council on Aging is offering pickleball to adults age 50 and older. Instructional classes will be lead by Jimmy O'Hearn, personal trainer and Senior Olympic gold medalist.

Classes begin Thursday and open play will also be available.

For more information, Call the YMCA at 842-7051 or check out the program brochure online at www.tcfymca.org
