What is pickleball?! It’s a sweet sport with a sour name, a craze that is sweeping the nation. It combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. The game is played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-size court, with a slightly modified tennis net, paddles and a plastic ball. Outdoor and indoor pickleball courts are located at Model Elementary School, 412 South Greene Road, in Goshen (open seasonally). If you want to learn more or see what pickleball mania is all about, you may also join us for indoor play at a Goshen Community Schools gymnasium, starting in November: Wednesdays and Thursdays, 5–8 pm, and Saturdays, 8 am to 2 pm. Please use door P to enter Model Elementary. Equipment rental is available at the Goshen Parks & Recreation Department, $5 for two paddles and a ball. Rules and procedures will be provided.
