|Free Pickleball Spring Potluck event is April 23 at New Century Fieldhouse|
One last pickleball hoorah before the summer heat sets in followed by lunch and an opportunity to get to know your fellow players better, is being planned during a late April program being presented by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Pickleball Potluck is the name of this event, which will take place on Thursday, April 23, at the New Century Fieldhouse, 551 New Century Fieldhouse, near Gardner. This free two-hour event will take place beginning at noon. Participants are asked to bring a side dish or dessert. Hot dogs and drinks will be provided.
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.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog, browse first under 50 plus and then under sports.

This event is free, those who would like to participate are asked to sign up on a sheet available at the front counter at New Century.
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.
The JCPRD’s Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information, call (913) 826-2859. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District’s website at www.jcprd.com.
