Join us at The Ellis School for a pickleball basics class with volunteers from the Cranberry Township Pickleball Association! Learn all about this addictive game with the silly name. This event is FREE, open to the public, and designed for kids in grades 5–9. Learn more about the two sessions below. Space is limited, so advance registration is required.
Session 1 (10:00–11:00 a.m.) is geared towards younger participants and is open to fifth and sixth graders. One adult chaperone per child should plan to attend and may participate with their child.
Session 2 (11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.) is geared towards older participants and is open to seventh, eighth, and ninth graders. This session will include some simple drills along with an introduction to the basics of the sport. Adults will need to check in and check out their child and are encouraged to stay and watch.
