PICKLEBALL at the Clare Veterans Center - MONDAYS & WEDNESDAYS

As of April 28, 2021: Pickleball is cancelled until further notice.

Participants will be asked to wear a mask upon entering & exiting the building, however you will be able to remove it during game play. Singles matches only, please no sharing of equipment (clean and sanitized equipment will be provided for onsite usage). Don't forget your water bottle and clean footwear!

All levels welcome!


Please note: You may notice that our Newsletter indicates only Monday sessions while our website indicates Mondays and Wednesdays. We only added the Wednesday sessions after the Newsletter was already printed, so there is in fact pickleball on Mondays and Wednesdays.
