It may have a silly name, but pickleball is no joke. The paddle sport that combines elements from badminton, tennis, and Ping Pong is becoming increasingly popular. Since the installation of a new pickleball court in Oak Crest’s Town Center Clubhouse, the fast-paced game is gaining traction with those looking for a fun way to stay in shape.

Sales Counselor Dennise Baldwin can help you plan a personal tour of Seabrook that is exactly that—personal.

For the next two months, Seabrook’s sales office expects to be busier than ever with personal tours. That’s because many people take advantage of having their adult children in town for the holidays to visit the Tinton Falls, N.J., Erickson Living community.
