Courting fun and fitness: Health club offers pickleball

Crossroads Fitness in Grand Junction now offers pickleball, a sport combining elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis.

“Pickleball is fun and can be played by all skill levels. It’s a great way to exercise in a social setting,” said Carol Pellowski, court sports manager at Crossroads Fitness.

Two to four players compete in pickleball using solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a polymer perforated ball over a net.

Crossroads Fitness operates an airport location at 2768 Compass Drive and downtown location 225 N. Fifth St. For additional information, call 242-8746 or visit the website located at
