It’s played on a badminton court … with oversized table tennis bats … using (more or less) tennis rules. Welcome to Pickleball!
Said to be the fastest-growing sport in the US, pickleball is rapidly taking hold in the UK too. Suitable for all ages and all skill levels, playable inside or outside, the game is easy for beginners to learn but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
And it’s coming to the Northern – the Club has invested in some equipment and will be advertising a Taster Day very soon, so watch this space!
PLUS – the badminton court lines on the old indoor court are being refurbished and we will be slotting badminton sessions into the court timetable as soon as possible.
With squash and racketball (only for family/ bubble members just now, but still …) that’s SIX ball sports on offer at the Northern!
