PickleBall Has Arrived in Lyndhurst!

Original Release: 9/4/2016
 
PickleBall Has Arrived in Lyndhurst! - City of Lyndhurst, Ohio
 
Pickleball, a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis has arrived in Lyndhurst!
 
When the City was contemplating renovation of the Brainard Park tennis courts it was suggested that the addition of Pickleball be considered.
 
Pickleball is a fast growing sport for young and old played on a court half the size of a tennis court. The courts at Brainard Park (1840 Brainard Road) are free to use when the park is open which is daylight hours only.
 
For those not familiar; two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a whiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime but has become popular among adults as well!
 
Demonstration Days at Brainard Park are Scheduled For:
 
Thursday - September 8th from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Friday - September 9th from 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Sunday - September 18th from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
 
Please wear comfortable tennis shoes and attire and bring a folding chair too.
 
Equipment will be on-hand for you to try with and a knowledgeable instructor!
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
