Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the US and it has begun to catch on in Southern Illinois! If you are looking to learn how to play this paddleball sport or wish to further hone your pickleball skills and strategy, join us at the SIU Student Recreation Center for lessons with our Certified Pickleball Coach.
