Getting Started with Paddle

You'll need a little bit of equipment. Racquets run $100-120. Here are two that you'll see around town from the two major manufacturers -- Viking and Wilson.

A registration fee is due to the Hinsdale Parks Department each season. Fees are $25 to $40/year for residents and $100 to $150/year for non-residents. The registration form (1.5 megabytes) and the fee schedule are:
