    What is Pickleball? A game for everybody 

    Come  join us for a fun and entertainment game  with members and friends at Mount Ogden Park.

    According to USAPA.org, there are over 15,000 indoor and outdoor courts in the United States; and at least one location in all 50 states. Pickleball is being introduced to kids in teenagers in physical education classes in middle and high schools. And though the sport has become more competitive through the years, many players enjoy the social aspects of the game and the ability to stay active in their own towns and communities.
