AARP in St. Louis' First Pickleball Classic is Huge Success

Posted on 12/19/18 by JoAnn Rose, AARP Missouri




Over 200 people joined us for the first AARP Pickleball Classic on Saturday, December 8th at Vetta Racquet Sports West in St. Peters.

AARP in St. Louis hosted their first pickleball event featuring on court instruction by USA Pickleball Association Ambassadors and members.  KSHE personalities John Ulett, Lern, Favazz and Mark Klose treated attendees to an exhibition game.  All attendees received an event t-shirt and a sports bag along with 3 hours of court time.

Special thanks goes out to all of the volunteers who made the magic happen on the courts that day!
