Franklin Recreation Department Introduces Pickleball

The Franklin Recreation Department is excited to announce that this summer we will be introducing a new program for the sport of Pickleball. According to USAPA (USA Pickleball Association) it is one of the quickest growing sports being played all across the country. Pickleball is a fast paced paddle sport that combines elements from tennis, badminton, and ping pong.

This program will be open to anyone ages 10 and up! Join us as we have open court time at the Franklin High School tennis courts on Tuesdays starting on June 28th and continuing until August 9th from 7-9 PM. Take this time to learn the rules and master the skills of the game or if you are already familiar with the sport use the time to compete against your friends in doubles matches each week. All necessary equipment will be provided, including nets, paddles, balls, etc. Registration is now open, free of charge and can be completed online, by visiting the Recreation Department at 275 Beaver Street in Franklin or by calling us at 508-613-1666.
