LAP Board Members Share Their Love for Pickleball with Local Students

On Tuesday, March 21,  Alison Helminski, an OJ Middle School Physical Educational instructor, invited two board members of the Ludington Area Pickleball (LAP) organization, PJ Smith and Katie Provenzano, to speak to students about the sport.

During their visit, PJ and Katie shared their personal experiences with Pickleball, explaining how they got involved with the sport and why they love it. They also provided information on how students can play Pickleball in Ludington this summer.

LAP is dedicated to promoting the sport of Pickleball in the Ludington area. The organization offers a variety of programs and events for players of all ages and skill levels, including beginner lessons, leagues, dedicated drop-in play times, and tournaments.
