Pickleball

Play Pickleball - the world's fastest growing sport!

Suitable for all ages & skill levels

Pickleball was invented so that you can scratch that sport itch you’ve been having, without all the pain that usually comes with it.  

It’s described as the fastest growing sport worldwide that is a combination of table tennis, badminton and tennis played on a half court. It’s easy on the body, you don’t have to be that fit to play and it’s a fun and social way to get moving and have some fun. Imagine keeping fit and active, without overly straining yourself.  Pickleball is your answer.
