The fast-growing sport of pickle ball will be on display in St. Vital this week for anyone who’s interested in seeing what all the racket is about.

A demonstration will be held on May 2 at 1 p.m. inside Jonathan Toews Community Centre.
The sport is played over a low net with a wooden racquet, and looks similar to tennis.

There are hopes to have an outdoor program at JTCC this summer.
