|New Pickleball Lesson and Intramurals offered in early March at Matt Ross Community Center|
Pickleball is the subject of two new programs begin offered in early March by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District. Both will take place at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8108 Marty, Overland Park.
Pickleball is a cross between tennis, badminton, and table tennis played on a court with two players per side who use a wiffleball and paddles.
Learn to play this interesting game during a Pickleball Lesson, which will take place beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday beginning March 4. The cost for one two-hour session is $6 per person for Johnson County residents or $7 per person for nonresidents. To register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
Beginning the following week, two courts will be available each Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to play Pickleball. There is a suggested donation of $2 per person per day to play. No advance registration is required for this program.
For questions about either program, call (913) 642-6410. Search for the keyword "pickleball" to find either program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings. The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
