Pickleball courts now available at McMillen Park Community Center!
Pickleball is similar to badminton and tennis. It involves playing on a court with the same dimensions as a badminton court with a hard paddle and perforated, plastic ball (whiffle ball). It takes very little instruction with most people able to play a regular game on their first day. Drop in fee: $1. Days may occasionally be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.
