Wondering what pickleball is all about? We were too! But lucky for us, we can all learn about pickleball at a free class at the Coronado Community Center on Jan. 23.

For now, Patch will do it's best to explain the fast-growing sport. Pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton, ping pong and racquetball. The USA Pickleball Association said that the game is with a ball similar to a Wiffle Ball and wood or composite paddles on a badminton court with a lowered net.

"It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players," the USA Pickleball Association said on its site.

The City will host a free introduction class to pickleball at the Coronado Community Center, 1845 Strand Way, on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Adults and seniors are welcome. Attendees will be provided equipment to learn.
