Riverside Athletic Club offering Pickleball
Riverside Athletic Club is excited to be continuing to offer Pickleball at its location at 500 S. Center Ave. This is an exciting game that’s a cross between tennis, badminton and ping pong. It’s one of the country’s fastest growing sports, and a game the entire family can play together.
The public is invited to sign up for the fall and winter Pickleball Leagues that are starting soon.
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court with the net lowered to 34” in the center. Players use a ball and wooden paddles. It can be played at a leisurely pace or at a highly competitive level – making it ideal for all ages and abilities. Riverside is excited to be able to bring this sport to the area and looks forward to having tournaments and socials for Pickleball in the coming months.
“As summer is winding down and fall is quickly approaching,” says Becci Simon, manager at Riverside Athletic Club, “we are always looking for something fun to do indoors and Pickleball is a fun game that almost anyone can play while having a lot of fun indoors.”
According to the USA Pickleball Association, the sport has about 100,000 participants nationwide and it has become extremely popular among the retirement communities across the US.
