The Joy of Pickleball!

Come see what all the chatter is about around the fastest growing sport in the nation – PICKLEBALL! If you can play ping pong, tennis or any other racquet sport, you can PICKLE! This popular, active, fun game, is on a court half the size of a tennis court and twice the fun! Play is indoors or outdoors and can be enjoyed at many parks, rec centers and clubs throughout the greater Milwaukee area and surrounding suburbs! Learn the history, rules and strategy behind the game, and how you can get involved from Mike McGuire, ITPTA teaching pro.
