Have you heard about “Pickleball”? It’s a fun crossover family game gaining in popularity across the country, and our very own Destin Community Center has three courts and 30 paddles available to lend out for those interested in playing. Pickleball is a wonderful combination of key elements of badminton, tennis, table tennis and volleyball. 

Although pickleball appears to be very similar to tennis, the harder paddles, slower- moving balls and smaller court size makes it more accessible to a wider range of players, particularly children and seniors, and is much easier to play than tennis! Plus, the low cost – and in some areas FREE - and indoor court keeps you cooler during our hot summer months, making it a COOL new sport for sure! 

Go to www.usapa.org for a complete list of state-by-state places to play and contact information.  Contact Pat Markey at 850-654-5184 for court and equipment availability.
