Greensburg YMCA Launching New Pickleball Programming

 

 GREENSBURG — One of the fastest growing sports in America is returning to the Greensburg YMCA, beginning in October.

The Y has announced new pickleball programming, beginning with a clinic on Oct. 13 and followed by pick-up pickleball nights on hursdays, beginning Oct. 20.

“We are really excited about the return of new pickleball programming,” said Scott Brown, Director of Sports and Wellness.  “Pickleball has become such a popular sport, and we want to be the designation for it in this area.  We have a great facility, in a great location, for indoor pickle ball.

“Our goal is not only to promote the game, but for our members and non-members to compete, learn how to play the sport, and enjoy the camaraderie and sense of community our Y offers.  Additionally, we want to expose the sport to players of all ages, and even introduce it as a family activity.”

The clinic will be held Oct. 13, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Y gymnasium, and will be run by local pickleball enthusiasts, Jacob DePalm and Mike Stewart Sr.  The two will discuss the game and rules, and show participants basic strokes and strategy.  There will be no registration for the clinic, and Greensburg Y members can attend free.  There is a $5 charge for non-members.

Pick-up games begin Oct. 20 and run Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m.  It is free for members, and $5 for non-members. There is no registration required.

For more information, call Brown at (724) 834-0150, ext. 113 or email him at s.brown@gbgymca.org.
