The Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department is offering a new course for folks who have ever wanted to try their hand at a game of pickleball.
The city is offering a Beginner Pickleball course with classes on Mondays and Fridays from October 9 through October 27. The classes will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Pickleball Court 1 in Riverview Park (300 Louis Street).
The course is for participants ages 10 and up and the cost is $30 for city residents and $35 for non-city residents. Students will enjoy an instructor-led course covering aspects of basic pickleball. All equipment will be provided.
If the October course fills up, a waiting list will be started for another beginner course in November.
