Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the United States. It is fun for all ages and easy to learn. In this Lunch and Learn, Charlie and Denise Ostlund will teach you the basics of Pickleball in the classroom. Then, you will be invited to play the game on Wooddale Church’s Pickleball courts. Pickleball balls and racquets will be provided for those who want to try them.

Charlie and Denise Ostlund have been attending Wooddale Church for 33 years. Recently retired, they are the parents of three children and grandparents to four. In 2014 while visiting friends in Arizona, they learned to play the game of Pickleball. It has now become one of their passions and they share their love of the game with others. Denise taught the basics of Pickleball to dozens of previous co-workers. Charlie and Denise have also been privileged to teach the game indoors at Wooddale’s Edina campus.
