A new sports craze is coming to Kewaunee County. Pickleball, a game part tennis, part ping-pong and part badminton is played on a surface one-third the size of a tennis court. Starting in early October people interested in playing the new sport can attend Pickleball 101 sessions at Kewaunee Health and Fitness. Josh Savoie, a Pickleball enthusiast, and employee of Kewaunee Health and Fitness says the craze is drawing a lot of attention in Kewaunee County.
Pickleball is a low impact sport that started in Florida before exploding nationwide. Savoie and the staff at Kewaunee Health and Fitness are excited to see how people react to the new sport. The first Pickleball 101 class begins October 3rd and those interested are asked to contact the fitness center or come by the events on Mondays at 1:00 pm, Tuesdays at 5:30 pm or Saturdays at 10:30 am.
