If you are a relative newcomer to pickleball but know the basics, including how to score, come out to our Beginner Play Sessions.  These are run by EPA volunteers who are there to answer any questions.  Practice some drills or simply play a few games.  It’s up to you.  Beginner Play Sessions will run at various times throughout the week.  Here are the courts that will have “Beginner Play Days” available throughout the Summer.  Playtime Scheduler will have the most up to date information on timing.  See “Game Play” or “FAQ” tab on this website for information on Playtime Scheduler – look for games indicating a 2.0 – 2.75 skill level once you have registered (free).  Please pre-register on Playtime Scheduler if possible, so our volunteers know how many players to expect.
