  • Pickleball

    Pickleball is a racket sport in which two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a polymer-perforated ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports: the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, with a net and a set of rules similar to those of tennis - plus a few modifications. This game is a blast for all ages! If you are interested in reserving a space for pickleball, please contact programs@upwardstarcenter.com
