Also offered at additional costs are private and semi-private pickleball lessons and a membership to our YMCA Pickleball Center at Downingtown, which adds 9 more indoor courts to your YGBW membership.

Combining elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong, pickleball is easy to learn and fun for all ages.
