Join the YMCA’s Pickleball Grand Opening Festival

Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the United States! It is one of the easiest sports to learn how to play, and if you’ve never played before, you will find this sport is similar to paddleball, ping pong, and badminton. At the YMCA’s member-only Grand Opening Festival, you will be playing and learning at the same time, which means you will have a lot of FUN. If you are already an active pickleball player, you will meet plenty of new friends at the Festival to start enjoying drop-in competition, general court play, camps, clinics and much more together. Start enjoying this safe, healthy and fun sport with your Y family.
