Wellington Parks & Recreation will host two 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 at the uncovered hockey rink at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road).
The beginner’s clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, June 13 from 9 to 9:30 a.m., while the advanced beginner’s clinic will be held Saturday, June 16 from 4 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 noon on Wednesday, June 13, and until 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. For more information, and pickleball open play availability, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/openplay.
