BATAVIA — Northgate Church will be offering youth pickleball this summer for middle and high school students.

The sessions will take place 1 p.m. on Thursdays. All events will be held at Northgate’s South Campus at 350 Bank St.

There is no cost, equipment or knowledge of the game requirement to attend. All that is required is the ambition to have a great time while learning an awesome game.

Games will begin July 1 and continue weekly. The first week will feature free pizza.

Northgate encourages participants to bring a friend and learn to “dink”, stay out of the “kitchen” and, hopefully, don’t get “pickled,” organizers said in a a news release. Call Pastor Daniel Calkins at (585) 343-4011, or email him at for more information.
