Pickleball Comes to Richmond Heights

6/20/2016

Richmond Heights Recreation, in association with Brookdale Senior Living, bring Pickleball to Richmond Heights Community Park

Pickleball is officially the fastest growing sport in America!  Come to the Richmond Heights Community Park tennis courts starting today and continuing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for the duration of the Summer to find out what it's all about and to get free lessons.

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics:

  1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
  2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
  3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball
