|Pickleball Lesson and Intramurals offered in early June at Matt Ross Community Center|
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 June 9. 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.

Through a Drop in and Play program, pickleball courts will be available each Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to play Pickleball at the Matt Ross Community Center. There is a suggested donation of $2 per person per day to play. No advance registration is required for this program. In addition, courts will also be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center, 11902 Lowell, Overland Park.

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.
