Pickleball program was added as an adaptive sport to keep with the inclusive nature of the organization. It is a simple paddle game played with a baseball-sized wiffleball over a tennis-type net on a Badminton-sized court. Over 1,800 players have graduated from the program and have used the sport to integrate back into society. Pickleball can enhance self-confidence and self-efficacy.
Racquetball instruction program is tailored to the needs of veterans, service members, and their families with visible and invisible injuries. It is the first adaptive court sport adopted under the name Military Racquetball Federation. These nation-wide racquetball programs are FREE and available to any/all veterans who have served in the military.
The Badminton Program was added as an additional means for veterans, service members, and their families to heal through adaptive court sports. It is also a part of the free, six-week instructional program. This court sport helps reduce depression, anxiety, and stress and improves overall mood and sleep.
Padel will be the latest court sport added to MACS.
