We created the program to encourage those 50 and older to continue their love of sports and competition. All equipment for these indoor sports will be provided by ERC. Equipment will be set up each morning by 11:00am by our staff.

Thursdays @ 9-11am – Table Tennis in the Community Room

Monday-Friday @ 11am – Pickleball in the Gymnasium

    Pickleball is a fun game which combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. The game is played with wooden paddles and a waffle ball the size of a baseball. Ordinarily this game is played on a tennis court but ERC has moved it indoors to the gymnasium. Pickleball is easy for beginners to learn (instruction available), but can also be a competitive game for the experienced player.   Table Tennis (ping pong) and Pickleball equipment will be available at ERC for your use.
