What Is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It was devised by two friends at a private home in Washington State, USA, in 1965. Being without racquets to play badminton, they improvised with some table tennis bats and a perforated tennis ball.

During the last ten years the popularity of pickleball has grown stratospherically and it is now the fastest growing racquet sport in both the UK and Europe.

A Social Affair

Not only do we love playing pickleball, we enjoy organising lots of different social activities amongst club members.

Just another reason to join us today to have fun, get some exercise and enjoy a warm sociable environment.
