  1. Heading to Gardiner in a few weeks for my nephew’s wedding. I don’t see any pickleball near Gardiner. Closest seems to be in Bozenman on Friday mornings from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. I’m a 58 year old 4.0/4.5 player, my wife and my brother are 3.5 players (although my wife is currently injured so may not be able to play). Any recommendations? I was thinking a morning drive through Yellowstone to Big Sky might be enjoyable, but it’s a 2 1/2 hour journey so want to make sure the pickleball play will be there if we make the trip to either Big Sky or Bozeman on Friday morning?

    Thank you!
