New Pickleball Program this summer!
Owatonna Pickleball in partnership with Owatonna Park and Recreation will be offering a three week/two days a week summer pickleball class for youth. Pickleball is an up and coming sport for all ages. Pickleball is a cross between badminton, tennis and ping-pong. It is played on a slightly smaller court then tennis and uses a paddle and a wiffle ball. This is a great opportunity for youth to learn a new sport, excellent exercise and spend an hour with other youth of the community. The classes will be offered at Manthey Park where the tennis courts have been marked for pickleball play. Members of the Pickleball group in Owatonna will be instructors for the afternoon classes. A limited number of participants will be accepted so that actual playtime will be at a maximum. Interested to find out how the sport is played go on line to www.pickleball.com.
