Pickleball - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana


Pickleball 2It’s not about Pickles!  Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center.  It is played with a perforated plastic ball (waffle ball) and composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.  It can be played in singles or doubles format (like tennis, but on a modified court with modified equipment).  Recommended for ages 14 to 104…

Per day of play we offer three session times (7:00-8:30 a.m. / 8:30-10 a.m. / 10-11:30 a.m. / 11:30 – 1 p.m.) for singles or doubles play.  Cost:  FREE (FM)/$5 (NM) per player per day visit (pay at front desk).  No equipment rental fees…paddles and game balls, for game play, is included in session fee.  Playing time is scheduled by signing up in advance at the YMCA front desk.
