If you have never heard of Pickleball you may well be wondering what it is all about. Pickleball is played in a court the same size as badminton doubles. The net is similar to a tennis net, but a little lower. It is a game that combines tennis, table tennis and badminton. Unlike other sports where you often need to take lessons to become adequate, you can get the hang of it in minutes.

The game is played with a hard “paddle” and a hard, hollow plastic ball with holes in it. It is low impact but good exercise, making it ideal for players of all ages and skill levels! It can be played as singles or doubles, though doubles is most common.

Cost £3 payable on the day.

Paddles and balls are provided.

It is fun and addictive, so come along and have a great time!
