Pickleball

Loaner pickleball equipment at the Harris branch library

If you’re itching to play pickleball but don’t have a paddle, the Harris branch library near the Elm Road courts has them to lend.

No paddles required for the Introduction to Pickleball class, Mondays in May, 5:30 – 7pm, weather permitting.  Paddles are provided for use during the class.

When you’re ready to buy a paddle, consider a product from Niles-based PaddleTech.  They support local efforts to encourage learning and play, including for the class!
