Wellington To Host Free Pickleball Clinics

In honor of National Pickleball Month this April, Wellington Parks & Recreation will host free pickleball clinics for beginners. Clinics will be held on the pickleball courts located in the uncovered hockey rink at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road).

Clinics are scheduled for Wednesday, April 25 at 9 a.m. and Saturday, April 28 at 4 p.m. and are open to all ages. The beginner-level clinics will 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 noon on Wednesday, April 25, and until 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 28. For additional information, and pickleball open play availability, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/openplay.
