Pickleball launches at The Northern

Considering it’s nearly four times the size of a squash ball and it’s bright orange, you’d think a pickleball ball would be easier to hit wouldn’t you?

But there you go … fun, infuriating (for a squash player), occasionally chaotic and fequently hilarious, pickleball made its debut at the Club on Saturday, with a social session led by Tennis Director Jonny Kinsella.

Despite making up the rules as he went along and swapping partners on a regular basis, even Jonny struggled with the flight and bounce, so the field is wide open for a new superstar to emerge. It could be you! (It certainly won’t be me…)

The session will continue @ 5.00pm every Saturday, with a full Taster Day planned for mid-October.
