Pickle Ballis taking North America by storm!  Pickle Ball is a racquet sport that uses a hard paddle and a polymer wiffle ball and combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis.  The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court, but the net is mounted two inches lower and the playing area is smaller. 

The Recreation Department has purchased two complete beginner sets for eight people to play at the same time!  Pickle Ball is scheduled to begin April 4 – June 13, 2012, Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm at MacLean Elementary School Gym.  To register, call 250-362-2327 or email recreation@rossland.ca!
