About pickleballEngland

PickleballEngland (pbE) has just submitted their application to be a recognised sport with Sport England, PbE is growing with over 1500 members, 150 clubs/groups/locations, we are aiming to have 25000 members by 2025 so turn curiosity into action and jo

Join the pickleball movement is pbE motto, pickleball is easy to learn, fun to play and kind on the joins as it has a low impact, therefore pickleball is a true life long activity.

For those who are not keen on sport but interested to stay active again pickleball is your answer, it's very social and a great activity to keep you moving the two biggest complains about pickleball are: pain in the cheeks (from continuous smiling and laughing) and it is addictive (you don't want the game to finish and if it does start a new one).

At this stage pickleball is very popular with the senior population but as it starts expanding across the nations and continents lots more younger age groups start enjoying pickleball on a regular basis.

For racket sport clubs this is one for you, in general tennis clubs will see a drop off in membership numbers as people age, this can be because of physical reasons, they stop playing and then don't renew their membership. What would you think if you could extent another 15-20 years to those members memberships??? again pickleball is your answer.

So what is pickleball, it is a central net sport played on a badminton seize court, it can be played as singles or doubles using a plastic ball with holes and a paddle (roughly twice the seize of as table tennis bat) skills used are similar to that of tennis, badminton, table tennis and squash, but if you don't have that experience thats absolutely fine many people play without previous racket sport experience...and even became Pro players. The rules are simple and easy to learn.
