  • The Eagle River Pickleball Association’s summer play schedule includes free beginner lessons and a new option called Pickleball Lite.

    The group welcomes people of all levels of play and tries to provide a variety of play options, said Barbara Helmick, ERPA president. All play takes place at Riverview Park in Eagle River.
