Youth Fitness

It is always wise to help children engage in proper eating and exercising habits. However, with childhood obesity on the rise, it is even more important to get your kids to the gym so they know how to best take care of their bodies. At Five Points Washington, we know the best way to keep children engaged in healthy activities is to make sure they are having fun. Exercise isn’t a chore when your mind is engaged. That’s why we strive to keep youth fitness activities interesting!

Pickleball® is played on a badminton-sized court: 20’ x 44.’ The ball is served
diagonally (starting with the right-hand service-square), and points can only be scored by the side that serves. Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net, to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins. Pickleball® can be played with singles or doubles.
