Senior Care Plus is pleased to announce we are now a proud sponsor of Jam On It Pickleball, open to the community seven days a week at the Reno Sparks Convention Center. We’re excited to help promote this fun activity to our members, employees and the public. Pickleball has many wonderful health benefits – particularly for seniors. It’s a low-impact game that raises the heart rate, improves hand-eye coordination and increases mobility. In addition to the obvious physical benefits, pickleball is a great social activity. Getting out of the house and playing a fun, easy-to-learn game with others is a great way to make new friends while improving your physical and mental health!  

Ralph Barbato, a Senior Care Plus member from Reno, is a huge fan of pickleball and all it has to offer. “Pickleball has made such a positive impact on my life. I love the physical and mental health benefits along with the social aspect – it’s a great way to meet new people and I’m excited to have it in our community,” said Ralph.  

Jam On It Pickleball at the Reno Sparks Convention Center makes it easy for newcomers to get involved in the game. They have beginner courts and even beginner lessons! By taking a lesson, you will be taught all the basics and fundamentals of how to play. Don’t have a pickleball and paddle? The facility has some available for you to borrow until you’re able to purchase your own. Once you feel ready to play a game with others, you can head on down to the convention center and they will help you get started.  

The Jam On It pickleball courts at the convention center are open to the community Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For information on entry fees, lessons and directions, click here
