Taster Sessions – Adults, Junior and Family Sessions

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Two or four players use solid paddles made of composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, over a net.

It is the fastest growing sport in the USA growing by over 20% during the pandemic! Pickleball really is a sport for everyone; in 2019, the US Nationals hosted by Indian Wells Tennis Garden had ages from 5-90 in the tournament and also had a wheelchair event as well. Due to it being a low impact sport on the body, players are able to play for long periods of time and are also able to play and compete against different age groups.
