Have you wondered what the Pickleball craze is all about?  It’s one of the fastest growing sports in the USA!  Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball (similar to a Wiffle Ball) over a net. The Recreation Dept. offers pickleball clinics for beginners through advanced (indoor/outdoor in Summer, indoors for Fall and Winter/Spring), drop-in pickleball at the Rec Center where you pay as you go for Fall and Winter/Spring, and an annual pickleball tournament in the Fall.  The Western Springs Park District offers 4 outdoor pickleball courts at Northeast Park, 114 W. 39th Street, Western Springs (near Odgen and Willow Springs Road).  


The Recreation Dept is offering:

1.  Clinics (Beginner or Intermediate-Advanced)

2.  Skills & Drills Challenges (Intermediate-Advanced)

3.  Drop-in Pickleball (October-June)
