Pickleball requires both a soft and a hard-hitting game. Gherkin Pickleball teaches the soft side of pickleball with the motto Placement Over Power. After the six-week course, you can continue to play the soft game with the Gherkins, or you can take advantage of follow-up opportunities that will help you transition to the harder-hitting game. Either way, Gherkin Pickleball is a fun way to start your pickleball endeavors. All you need is to show up with a pair of sport shoes and comfortable clothing so you can move freely. Don't forget your water bottle! We provide all the rest. Please note: this course is only for people who have never played pickleball before. VIU tiwšɛmawtxʷ Campus would like to thank the Gherkins. They are not only volunteering their hours, they are also supplying the nets, paddles and balls to help subsidize the cost so we can charge only a $27 fee. Please note: Game Days are part of the course and start week one. For a small $2 drop-in fee, we will have Game Day each Friday from 10 am to noon for you to use the skills you learned in the Wednesday session. Game Days bring the lessons to life! Please count on Friday Game Days as part of the 6 sessions. A mini-tournament will take place on the last Friday, March 10 as a way to end the course.
