The Jewish Community Center of Binghamton will be holding an Intro to Pickeball classthis fall for youth ages 7 and up.

Pickleball is a fast-growing sport, having first been developed in 1965. The activity combines elements from badminton, tennis, and table tennis – players play on a badminton doubles court with a lowered net, using composite paddles and whiffle balls to play. The sport offers a friendly and competitive atmosphere and a lower impact sport for those looking to participate in a physical group activity. According to ZuranoTubo, pickleball is a “3 generational sport,” meaning that families can take part in it regardless of age or ability. In fact, “the average age of a pickleball player is about 63,” says Tubo, though that doesn’t mean the sport isn’t meant for children and younger adults.The JCC recently hosted a week-long Youth Pickleball Camp during this past summer, and hopes to continue to offer opportunities for people of all ages to participate in this fun and exciting new sport.
