Pickleball

Pickleball has arrived in East Haddam! You may ask, what in the world is pickleball? It 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. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. It is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes that looks similar to a wiffleball. Come check it out and play in our gym on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30am-11:30am. Thursday evenings 6-8pm. This time will move to 6:30-6:30pm as of 2/21/19. We provide all equipment. Ages 18 and older. Drop in fee is $5/day.
