Would you like to play Pickleball each Thursday?

Pickleball is a rapidly growing sport in the UK and a sort of cross between tennis, badminton and table tennis. It’s played on a badminton size court, with a tennis-height net and a paddle about twice the size and thickness of a table tennis bat.

It’s said to be really fun and easy to learn: you will be up and playing within ten minutes. It’s also popular with the over-50s.

The first Pickleball group in the North East has been established and they play:

When: every Thursday from 2.30pm to 4.30pm

Where: at Tyneside Badminton Centre, 37 Bowness Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE5 2TA .

Cost: £5 per session but the first session is free.

Equipment – paddles, balls, etc. are provided.  New players are always very welcome.

If you are interested or want more information:– either go along or please contact Peter McCue on 0782 777 6101 or on [email protected] .
