Wellington Announces FREE Pickleball Clinics in June

Post Date:06/04/2018
Have a “pickle” ball this summer with Wellington Parks and Recreation. The public is invited to attend two new FREE Pickleball Clinics in June, for beginners and advanced beginners (some experience required) of all ages. Clinics will be held on the pickleball courts located in the uncovered hockey rink at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road).

A beginner’s clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, June 13th, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and an advanced beginner’s clinic will be held Saturday, June 16th, from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The clinics serve as an introduction to the sport of Pickleball, which combines the elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, into a lively, competitive game for all abilities. Participants will learn the rules of the game, how to keep score, how to serve, playing positions, and other fundamentals. Equipment is limited, so those wishing to attend are asked to bring their own paddle.

Following the clinics, attendees are invited to remain at the courts for open play, until 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13th, and until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 16th. For additional information, and Pickleball open play availability, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/OpenPlay.
