Youth Pickleball

Youth Pickleball Drop-In

Currently, the sport of pickleball is exploding in popularity. Pickleball is fun, social and friendly! There’s a reason so many players get hooked on this sport – it’s easy to start, but hard to stop. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game. Pickleball can be enjoyed by all ages and skill levels and the Lakeland Hills YMCA is excited to offer the sport to our youth members.

Pickleball is Easy to Play

Unlike tennis, Pickleball is a racquet sport that is easy to learn and play. Literally, you can learn and play a full a game of Pickleball on your first day. The more kids play the game, the easier it is to build and improve their skills. 

Pickleball is a Family Sport

Pickleball is excellent for all ages. The sport is great to play with the family. Your kids can play with their parents, grandparents, or cousins. You name it! It is a chance for a great family bonding that usually doesn’t happen due to busy schedules. 

The best part about this sport is that children get to play outside with all generations of the family. This is, also, a great activity to play during family events or parties since you can improvise a court in your backyard. 

Pickleball is Great for All Ages

Since the ball travels slower and the court is smaller, compared to tennis, the game can be played by people of all ages, as well as fitness levels. 

For adults, Pickleball provides more action and stimulation to those who want to be fit even at an older age. The smaller court and the slower ball are great because it offers less strain on the joints and muscles. This creates an excellent combination because both children and adults can play with each other and enjoy it at the same time!
