A Pickleball Clinic is scheduled to be held at the Little Fort Community Hall to introduce Little Fort, Darfield and Barriere communities to the sport of Pickleball.
Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines the elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Two or four players use solid oversized ping pong type paddles to hit a whiffle ball over a net.
Since its inception in 1965, pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. Known as a sport for everyone it is easy to learn, fun to play and surprisingly competitive.
Considered to be low-impact, pickleball improves one’s reflexes and cognitive thinking (often in the excitement of a good rally, participants have been known to ‘dig deep’ to remember the score).
Pickleball can be played either indoors or outdoors only requiring a badminton sized court with a 32-inch-high net (paddles and ball). These qualities make pickleball accessible to people of all ages.
Find out more by attending the Pickleball Clinic to be held on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., upstairs at the Little Fort Community Hall, on Highway 24.
Two experienced instructors from Kamloops will be conducting this two-hour clinic.
Registration is limited to 16 participants and a nominal fee of $3 will offset gasoline and equipment costs endured by the instructors.
