Pickelball gets started in Alta

Friday, July 12, 2019

Who is ready for some Pickelball? An effort is underway to get pickelball games underway in the Alta area. If you are interested in forming a team, please contact Ed Rahe at 200-2045.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels, pickelball is gaining popularity around the country. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

Pickelball can be played both indoors and out (using tennis courts marked off for a slightly smaller playing area), and combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. A plastic ball with holes is used, and both singles and doubles versions can be played.
