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 or badminton court, but ERC has moved it indoors to the gymnasium & racquetball courts. Pickleball is easy for beginners to learn, but can also be a competitive game for the experienced players.

*The gym may be closed at times due to ERC Programs. Check the Gym Calendar at for availability.
