What we're about

Have you heard friends from other parts of the country talking about Pickleball? Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation, especially among active baby boomers, and it is finally reaching the Bay Area (it's only taken 50 years to get here!).

Pickleball was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you’re five, eighty-five or somewhere in between. While most players play for fun, exercise and recreation, there are leagues and many competitive opportunities as well. Come learn to play and you'll figure out where you fit in!

This group is intended to help introduce newcomers to the game, help connect players with other players, and increase the number of playing opportunities for all of us.
