Pickleball and paddleLancer Recreation will host a Learn-to-Play Pickleball Night on Nov. 29.

Students and employees invited to learn to play pickleball

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, Lancer Recreation will host a free learn-to-play pickleball night from 7:45 to 9:45 p.m. in the Toldo Lancer Centre. All UWindsor students and staff are welcome to attend.

Local pickleball coaches and players Robert Veteri and Mike Graff will instruct and inform participants about the game’s rules and play: principles of safety, positioning, types of shots, and more. There will be lots of time for questions and exhibition play afterwards.

The instructors are multi-gold medalists in pickleball at levels just below professional, playing in both Canada and the United States. They have been successful clinic instructors for over five years.

The Toldo Lancer Centre has some paddles and balls available, but recommends individuals bring their own equipment if they have it.

Open recreation pickleball is available at the Toldo Lancer Centre on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 to 11 a.m. All those with a valid membership and day pass may participate.

Send questions about the event to Giulia Bernabo.
