Pickleball for Seniors


Pickleball returns to the J.V. Washam Recreation Center on Thursday nights beginning September 23! Join the Cornelius Parks & Recreation Department (CPRD) as we offer free play pickleball for adults ages 50 and up. This increasingly popular sport will be for beginner and intermediate players. It is a fun sport that will provide you with a great workout while also offering a very social and competitive game. 

We will have courts designated for beginners and for intermediate players.

Pickleball is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Read the Pickleball Rules.
