2018 Pickleball Classic is Sold Out - Thank you all for your support!

Posted on 10/22/18 by JoAnn Rose, AARP Missouri

Yep…we are hitting the pickleball court and want you to join us!

AARP in St. Louis is hosting the AARP Pickleball Classic on Saturday, December 8 at Vetta West in St. Peters.  Designed for those that have always wanted to try the sport to those that have played a bit already, this will be a fun time on the court!

There are three sessions from which to choose from:

Session 1:  8:00am to 11:00am  FULL
Session 2:  11:30am to 2:30pm  FULL
Session 3:  3:00pm to 6:00pm  FULL

Pickleball is a doubles sport so, if you have a partner, you can indicate so on the registration form.  If not, no worries!  We will set you up with a partner for the day. No equipment…No worries!  We will have paddles and balls for participants to use that day.

Each participant will receive a sports bag, t-shirt, instruction by experienced pickleball players, free time on the court and more.

An added bonus – Two exhibition games will take place 11:00 to 11:30 and 2:30 to 3:00.  The first game will feature John Ulett and other personalities from KSHE while the second will have media personalities from TV and radio in the St. Louis region.  Watch the video above for a special message from John!  It will be a fun time you won’t want to miss!

Registration is $10 per person for AARP members and $25 per person for non-members.  Advance registration is required.   

Space is filling up fast so don’t delay – get your registration in today!
