Pickleball for Kids Starting in February

Newton Community Education is pleased to announce two new classes starting in February: Pickleball for Kids! While pickleball has elements of tennis, racquetball, and ping pong, it is a unique game with its own set of quirky rules. Students will learn how to keep score, the mystery behind the “kitchen” player positioning, and the many different types of shots. Instruction will include both drills and game playing. Students should wear sneakers and comfortable clothing. Bring your own paddle!
Classes will be held at Mason Rice Elementary School on Thursday evenings. We expect these classes to enroll quickly, so sign up and don’t miss out. For more information and to register, visi:

Orienteering in Newton

Newton Parks and Recreation is teaming up with New England Orienteering Club to offer an introduction to orienteering training for beginners at Auburndale Park in Newton, MA.  The training will take place on Saturday, March 26th between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm and will include 30-45 minute training sessions for small groups.  Participants will then be able to head out on their own or as a small group to try any of the 5 courses that will be set up.     

In addition to the one day training event, we will also be hosting a Bring Your Own Map event for people who already know how to do orienteering.  5 different courses will be set up (including a white-beginner, yellow-advanced beginner, and 3 sprint-intermediate courses all ranging from 1.3 km – 3.7 km) and people will be able to do the courses anytime between March 26th – April 3rd.  

Registration for both events is free for New England Orienteering Club members, or $10.00 per person/family.  Organized groups have a special rate of $20.00 per group + $2.00 per person (so a group of 10 people would be $40.00 total) but must register in advance.  This rate is the same for the introduction training or the Bring Your Own Map event.   

For more information about both the Introduction to Orienteering event on March 26th and the Bring Your Own Map Event running March 26th – April 3rd at Auburndale Park in Newton, please go to the New England Orienteering Club website under the schedule tab 

and click on the appropriate link.   

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I look forward to being able to offer more orienteering programs in Newton.
