What we're about

If anyone is looking for a fun new sport to try, let us introduce you to Pickleball.

It's not a new sport that just came out. People have been playing it since 1965. But in recent years, it has been rapidly growing in the Bay Area. There are lots of places to play around the Bay and more courts are being added.

Pickleball is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive sport for experienced racquet sport players. Don't need expensive equipment to start. It's a social sport (making new friends is just part of the sport). It will get you active. It can even be a good sweaty workout. You can choose to play competitively (leagues and tournaments) or just recreational.

Here is a link to explain what Pickleball is...

If you or someone you know want to give it a try, come join the group.

Experienced players: Message me and I can suggest open play times for you to join at Alameda (home court: Lincoln Park, 1450 High Street) or at other courts around the Bay Area.
