We had a huge turn out for our Pickleball demonstration day at the club’s 80th party. So much so, that we had to physically throw people off the courts at 10pm!

Many of you had a go and for those that didn’t, we will be organising some more demonstration/open/practise days. Our next confirmed date is Wednesday 14th June on badminton courts 1 & 2 from 5pm-7pm.
We would like to thank Carolyn Laville & her family, along with her Pickleball friends that came down on the day to help us with the rules and promote this exciting racquet sport.
On the Saturday 24th June, we are holding a doubles Pickleball tournament in aid of Cancer Research UK. Join us for a fun afternoon followed by some food and drinks in the evening. Please sign up at reception in person or by phone. Limited to the first 70 entries so be quick!
The prize for the winners is £50.00 club credit each! Also prizes for losing finalists and all semi-finalists.

 

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America and more information can be found here: The Rules & History of Pickleball

There will be a demonstration match beforehand involving some players from a local club and potentially our own star player, Tina F!
