Pickleball is offered Sunday to Friday at various City locations. Cost to attend is $3.00 for Beckett members and varies for non-members. 

Pickleball is a ‘tennis-like' racquet game played with four people on a badminton sized court. The paddles used are light-weight and solid, used to hit a large hollow plastic ball. It can be easy enough for anybody to play and will provide a good workout for those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
