PICKLEBALL AT GRESHAM & FISHER’S LANDING

Pickleball was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you’re five, eighty-five or somewhere in between. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and athletic abilities thanks to its ease of play and straightforward rules. The sport is inexpensive, social and healthy, and has been widely accepted in school gyms, fire stations, community centers, local parks, athletic clubs and thousands of backyard sports courts. In some ways it’s a combination of tennis and badminton, and along with sports such as table tennis and racquetball, pickleball has exploded in popularity. Thousands of pickleball courts have been built in recent years, especially in senior communities. Play at Cascade on our indoor or outdoor tennis courts at Gresham or in the gym at Fisher’s Landing. Nets, paddles and balls available to use at the Service Desk.
