Join us at WSC for a game of pickleball

Pickleball is a paddle sport that is growing in popularity and can be played both recreationally and competitively. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but it can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It’s gentle on the joints, offers moderate exercise and is social in nature. This fun sport combines elements from tennis, ping pong and badminton.

Racquets can be rented at the front desk for $2/racquet.
Pickleball balls are available for purchase at the front desk.
