The New Castle Recreation Department is offering a spring pickleball program on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the gym at Elk Creek Elementary School. Participants play with different partners each game and the top point earners receive awards at the end of the program. Drop in play is encouraged and the fee is $5.00 at the door.

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America and
 is a sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, table tennis and volleyball. It is played on a court with a hard paddle and small wiffle ball. Participants do not need to be athletically gifted to play, and it is much easier to learn than many other traditional sports. All necessary equipment is provided. We plan to offer a spring league, so join your friends and neighbors, and try the fastest growing sport in America! Add yourself to the Pickleball Interest Group list on-line at!
