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+.

Fundamentals Class

Wilson
12/6/22 - 12/20/22
VIEW

Fundamentals is now open for registration on a week to week basis!

Learn to play pickleball!  Your first step is Fundamentals class, which is offered weekly on Tuesdays at 8:00AM. The class is one hour.  But if you want to stay after class for more practice, instructors are usually available to play with you until about 10:00.  Students and instructors all enjoy this extra  “guided play” time together.

Each pickleball student may attend up to 6 consecutive classes.  But you will learn the basics in one class!  Registration opens one week in advance and is required for each session.

Please arrive a few minutes early to get checked in etc, so we can begin class right at 8:00AM. Wear sneakers. BRING WATER! Equipment is provided.
