Pickleball

Pickleball

Pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It may be a silly name, but it’s a serious sport. It’s fast-paced and easy to learn, great exercise and fun for all!

To learn to play, you are invited to Pickleball Fundamentals class.

Our comprehensive pickleball program also includes open play,  ladder league, After Hours, round robins, clinics, private lessons, Zero-Zero-Fit (pickleball fitness class), social activities and more! Some of the these activities are suspended due to Covid, but we will bring them back asap!

Stay in the loop by watching the “Pickleball Wall” in the gym and joining the pickleball email list. (See Anne.)

Some of our activities are available to non-members!

Aiken YMCA Pickleball is for ages 8+.
Wilson Y pickleball is for ages 16+.
North Jefferson Y Pickleball is for ages 16+.
