Noblesville Parks Announces Pickleball Drop-In Gym Hours to begin Monday

09/16/2019

 

The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department has announced Pickleball drop-in gym hours for the fall and winter at the Recreation Annex at Ivy Tech Community College, 300 North 17th Street. As Pickleball continues to grow in popularity, drop-in gym offers a fun way for the community to play the sport. All skill levels are encouraged to participate.

Pickleball drop-in gym hours will begin Monday, September 23. Morning hours will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday; afternoon hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Sundays.  Wednesday evening hours are 6 to 8 p.m. Drop-in gym will not be offered December 25 and January 1.

For those not familiar with the sport, Pickleball is a fun game for all ages and skill levels. It is played with a paddle and plastic ball and combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. The Recreation Annex holds no fewer than three indoor courts which provide great play for all experience levels.

Pickleball participants should park on the east side of the building off of Harrison Street by Beaver Materials Field and enter Gate 18. The cost for a drop-in player is $5, or a 12-visit punch pass is available for $50.
