Pickleball and GSL

We invite you to participate in the fastest growing sport in the country—PICKLEBALL!  Pickleball is played with a paddle and a whiffle ball over what looks like a tennis net on a badminton sized court. The growth of this sport speaks to the essence of the game—it is inclusive, accessible, easy to learn (challenging to master), doable for all shapes and sizes, for all ages and for all athletic / non-athletic ability levels.  

GSL Church does not currently have a Pickleball court, but that could change in the foreseeable future.  In the meantime, we’ve been invited to grab a friend and drop by St. Luke’s United Methodist Church at 480 S. Highland, Memphis, TN 38111 on Tuesdays/Thursdays from 12–2 p.m. to meet new people, learn to play, and do something healthy and FUN!  Before you know it, you will be teaching others how to play! 

LOOK!  Do you see our very own, Taylor Taylor, PICKLEBALL EXTRAORDINAIRRE front and center of the photo?

Where: St. Luke’s United Methodist Church at 480 S. Highland, Memphis, TN 38111. Enter the CLC/Gym entrance from Midland St. Phone number: 901-452-6262.
