Pickleball Drop-ins & Clinics @ Ridge Sports Center - Gym
Dec 2 all-day

We offer various drop-ins and clinics including beginning and women-only sessions. Please check our current hours and event schedule for the latest drop-in dates and times.

Paddles are available and non-marking shoes are required. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is two inches lower than tennis, and played with a hard paddle and a polymer, which is a smaller version of a wiffle ball. With a smaller court and slower ball speed, pickleball is much easier to play than tennis.

A little pickleball trivia: the game started during the summer of 1965 on Bainbridge Island, Washington at the home of Congressman Joel Pritchard. He and two of his friends returned from golf and found their families bored one Saturday afternoon. They attempted to set up badminton but no one could find the shuttlecock. They improvised with a wiffle ball, lowered the badminton net, and fabricated paddles of plywood from a nearby shed. The name is said to have originated by Joan Pritchard, who said it reminded her of the “Pickle Boat crew where oarsmen were chosen from the leftovers of other boats.”

Sisters Folk Festival Winter Concert Series @ Sisters High School Auditorium

Sisters Folk Festival Winter

 

Friday, February 6: The Foghorn Stringband will kick off the Sister’s Folk Festival Winter Season. This Portland  string band proves that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration. They don’t fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the first place.  These mulit-instrumentalists are sure to bring warmth to the Winter season.

 

Doors open at 6:30pm.
