PickleBall is becoming a big dill--after all, it's the fastest growing racquet sport in the world and it's totally addictive.

Join Tennis Pro Dmitri on Saturday August 5th from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the GPYC pickleball center for a seminar with some of Michigan's most experienced players. You'll learn the basics of pickle, play a ton of points, and get a shot to take Tennis Pro Dmitri and some of Michigan's best players on.
To boot we'll be BBQ'ing and snacking on a ton of McClure's pickles!
What you'll need:
A good pair of tennis shoes
A pickle paddle that you can find here
Note: A limited number of pickle paddles will be available for rent out of the tennis house.
Spots are limited. $20 RSVP by clicking here.
