MURRAY, KY – The Center for Health & Wellness recently opened new pickleball courts. The courts are open Monday-Friday from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm and 6:45 pm – 7:45 pm, Saturdays from 7 am – 9am, and 11 am – 2 pm, and on Sunday from 12 pm – 4 pm. The popularity of pickleball has grown by leaps and bounds and this is an exciting opportunity for Center for Health & Wellness members and the community.

Pickleball is often explained as a hybrid of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It is played on a badminton-sized court with a net, but involves less running than tennis. The sport, which can be enjoyed as doubles (two players per team) or singles, is played with a hard paddle and perforated plastic balls.
