Lakeland Athletic Club Pickleball Demo Open House

You are cordially invited to join the FUN!

FRIDAY, JUNE 11 at 10:30 AM

Pickleball is an extremely popular sport that is spreading into the Midwest from the Southern and Western States where it is played all year long. It is especially suited to Seniors although all ages enjoy the sport. We are targeting new adult players although kids are welcome to come to the open house.

Played much like tennis, the court is the size of a badminton court with slightly lower net. It is played with paddles and whiffle ball and scored more like volleyball. It can be an extremely competitive sport including tournament play or just played recreationally. It is easy for anyone to learn.

We are introducing the sport and will be offering Pickleball programs and league play at Lakeland Athletic Club in the afternoons during the week and on Saturdays/Sundays in the near future.

Join us for the Open House, see how the game is played and pick up more information. If you cannot come to see it yourself and are interested, contact me by email for further details about the program.
