Minimizing Mistakes with Paddle Position
Pickleball is America’s fastest-growing racket sport. Whether it’s played indoors or outside, pickleball offers its participants exciting action, strategy opportunities, great exercise and good clean fun.
The sport is played with a paddle and combines elements of tennis, table tennis and badminton. It can be played as singles or as doubles.
Camillus Park is home to six dedicated pickleball courts. Located on the west side, these courts are freshly paved and painted, and are available from dawn until dusk for pick-up games to players who have their own nets and equipment.
Beginning the first week in June, a Friends of Camillus Park representative will be at the park, weather permitting, on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 until dusk, and Saturday morning from 9:00-12:00 pm. All are invited to play – new players as well as experienced players. Paddles and balls are available for beginners to borrow, as well as requested instruction or entry-level coaching. Players are expected to assist with the equipment setup and take down.

Interested players may also subscribe to an FOCP Pickleball email distribution list which will communicate the most up-to-date playing status when inclement weather threatens.
