Henderson Happenings features hundreds of programs and events offered by the City of Henderson
for you, your family and your friends to enjoy. For your convenience, there are three easy ways to
register for Parks and Recreation programs—online, by mail, and in person at any recreation center.
Registration begins at 6:00 a.m. on December 18 and is ongoing until classes fill. We recommend that
you register early because some programs fill very quickly, while others may be canceled if minimum
enrollment is not met. Tickets for events hosted at the Henderson Pavilion can be purchased at

About the Cover
Pickleball is a fast-growing sport created for all ages and skill levels. According to the USA Pickleball
Association, players over 55 years of age make up almost ¾ of all active pickleball players.
A paddle sport, pickleball combines many elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis and can be
played as singles or doubles. The City of Henderson offers year-round open and league play on indoor
and outdoor courts. Whether a beginner or seasoned pro, Henderson Games and our three annual
tournaments provide opportunities for competitive pickleball play.
