Pickleball is something of a mix between tennis, racquetball and ping pong. Players use
special paddles and a whiffle ball, and games take place on tennis courts with specific
pickleball lines. Nets and court sizes are smaller than their tennis counterparts, and the
most common game is doubles, although singles is also an option. It has its own set of
quirky rules — for instance, try to stay out of the “kitchen”— but they’re easy to learn.
The game is quick, making it a convenient way to get in some exercise. Games in a typical
league run only 15 minutes each — you can get in as little or as much as you want.
We have experienced players that would love the opportunity to teach new players. It’s

Participants Wanted for a Research Study
Identifying Neural Pathways Implicated in Older Adults’ Emotional Well-being
This study is designed to research and identify the underlying biological factors that promote
better emotional well-being in older adults. Typically, older adults have a more positive affect and
greater life satisfaction than younger adults due a reported greater mindfulness. In this study,
participants are asked to complete a two-part fMRI scan to assess DMN connectivity which is
associated with emotional regulation. They will complete a 20-minute resting scan and a 20-minute
emotion expectation task while in the scanner. Completion of the assessment should take no longer
than 1.5 hours.
To be eligible to participate:
Must be 65+ * Fluent in English * Right-handed
