Pickleball games set for Feb. 15 at racquet club

The court dimensions are similar to a badminton court, the net is lower than for tennis and the rules are somewhat similar to tennis.


All equipment will be provided. After play, participants will enjoy pizza and beverages.


There is a $15 fee; registrations are being accepted through Feb. 12 at the racquet club or at the park district office at 3301 Flossmoor Road in Flossmoor. For additional information, contact Umang Chadda, racquet sports manager, at [email protected].
