Pickleball … funny name isn’t it! But once you’ve played it you will be hooked for life.
Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It’s best described as a sport played with giant table tennis paddles and ball on a badminton sized court played over a lowered tennis net.
But to really get a feel for this game you’ve really got to see and come and have a go. This sport is of the most inclusive sports there is.
At sessions at the John Charles Centre for Sport (JCCS) Tennis Centre you will find some of the top players in the UK playing alongside people new to the sport. Ages range from 10 to 85 and there are wheelchair players too.
Everyone plays the same game. So come and give it a go.
You can play Pickleball at JCCS on Mondays 12-2pm and 7-9pm; Wednesdays 5-6pm (families) and 7-9pm; Thursdays 12-2pm.
