RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — United Cerebral Palsy of Nevada, Toll Brothers Homes, and the Truckee Meadows Pickleball Club have partnered once again to host a pickleball fundraiser to support the local children’s conductive education school.
Today’s event supports the THRIVE program, a locally based conductive education therapy school for children with neuromotor disabilities like cerebral palsy.
Last year’s event drew approximately 80 players and raised more than $2,400 for the program.
Pickleball is a cross between tennis and ping pong, using paddles and wiffle balls. It is said to be one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Players of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.
The event will take place on Wednesday, May 22, at 9:00 a.m. at the outdoor courts at Regency at Damonte Ranch (9915 Hafflinger Ln., Reno, NV 89521).
