Beginners Challenge Play

Attention New Pickleball Players:  Thank you for participating in the Prescott Pickleball Association’s 2018 Beginner Pickleball Lessons.

Final night of the summer lessons. Pictured here are six instructors with just a few of the 119 who came out from April to August to learn to play pickleball.

Because of your enthusiasm for the sport, the Prescott Pickleball Association and City of Prescott have designated Mondays from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm as Challenge Night for Beginners on courts 3 and 4 at the Prescott Pickleball Courts.

This is your time to practice what you’ve learned during the lessons you took over the summer, and to find other pickleball players in your skill level who are also working to improve their game.  We are moving into a great season to play pickleball. Keep coming out to the Prescott Pickleball Courts to enjoy the fun.

Below is a slideshow of photos taken during several sessions throughout the summer for you to remember how much fun we all had.
