PARDS Fitness and Aquatics Center will begin open play for pickleball from 8 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays in July.

Participation is free to Parks and Recreation of Denham Springs members. PARDS will supply the paddles.

PARDS accepts several insurances that will reimburse membership fees, or guests can play the game for a small fee, organizers said. For information, call the fitness center at (225) 664-8099.
