|Turkey Time Pickleball Potluck lunch is Dec. 5 at New Century Fieldhouse|
Pickleball players are invited to be thankful for each other and the sport that brings them together during a free lunch gathering begin presented in early December by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This Turkey Time Pickleball Potluck lunch will take place beginning at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at the New Century Fieldhouse, 551 New Century Parkway, near Gardner. JCPRD will provide the turkey, and there is no fee for this one-hour program, but players are asked to bring a side dish, appetizer, or dessert. A sign-up sheet is located at New Century's front desk. Note that this event was originally scheduled for Nov. 14, but was postponed.
To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog, browse first under 50 plus and then under sports. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “pickleball.”
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.
While 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 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.
