Pickeball takes centre court at the Leo

Naples, Florida has claimed the unofficial title of Pickleball Capital of the World but with the schedule at the Leo, Prescott may take away their title.
It’s a sport that’s a little like ping pong and a little like badminton with a solid paddle, a 3 inch hard plastic ball and an over 36 inch high net. Opponents on each side hit the ball back and forth until one player commits a rule infraction. There’s great debate if the game was named after boat crew races or a dog but whatever the origin the game seems to be growing in popularity. 
You can try your hand at Pickleball at the Leo Bovin Community Centre 9-11am Mondays and Wednesdays and 6-8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The cost is $5 for drop in or $30 for a monthly membership.
