The Pittsfield Family YMCA announces a free session of pickleball from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, for seniors and adults.

Pickleball is a cross between tennis, racquetball and ping pong, although also described as less intense than tennis.

This clinic is designed for seniors and adults and will be hosted by Sue and Doug Edwards, ambassadors of the USA Pickleball Association.

Interest at the free Jan. 8 event will gauge whether the Y establishes a pickleball clinic.
