Get some court shoes, a pickle ball paddle and find a court with beginner play and you'll be an expert in no time.

Da Chicago So Side; The Village of Park Forest, IL; 3/7 Cav, 3rd Inf Div, Schweinfurt, Ger 65-66; MACV J12 Saigon 66-67; San Leandro, Hayward & Union City, CA (San Francisco East Bay Area) GO DUBS ! (aka W's)

Sign up for 101 to learn the rules. Next is 102. After 102 start playing in beginners open play. 101,102, & 103 are found in the rec guide. I think 101 is offered at seabreeze on Wednesdays but check the rec guide. You do need to sign up not just show up for 101.102,& 103. They provide paddles at 101, 102 & 103 if you like it you can get your own paddle on market nights at LSL.

We just finished PB102...we were told there is no signup for 103...just show up.
When calling to sign up for 101 and 102, make sure you call or go to the rec center at 8:30AM ONE week before the class. The classes fill up VERY quickly.
You can take a chance and just show up for 101 or 102 without pre-registering. At our 102 class there were a couple of no-shows and they took the hopeful walk-ins.
