What we're about

The Bend Pickleball Meetup welcomes everyone interested in playing Pickleball at the 2.5 - 4.0 level* Also, we welcome absolute beginners. We have Absolute Beginner instruction which includes loaner paddles. Our resident Pro also has PB instruction for Advanced Beginners, as well as intermediate clinics/ratings for 3.0,3.5 4.0)

If you already belong to the Bend Pickleball Club or other club, you should still join our meetup also (it's free to join for a 6 month trial period). We offer a different experience, and variety of time slots including Saturday, Sunday and Evening play. We offer less expensive alternatives. For example, our winter indoor organized play is only $7. Also, we will have occasional social events so pickleballers can get to know one another better. Our meetups offer Monday - Sunday events; morning, afternoon and evening.

Bend Pickleball Meetup dues are used to cover the $180 annual expense for our meetup site, and other club expenses. Our MeetUp is a non-profit club, and all funds will be used for club purposes only. The dues are $5 per year, and are charged only after a 6 month trial period.

* 2.5 level Beginners must have had at least one pickleball lesson (or equivalent), you understand the basics of the PB game rules, and you have had some practice hitting the ball. In Pickleball jargon, it means you are self-rated to a 2.5. However, if you are an Absolute Beginner (2.0 rating), we strongly encourage you to take at least one Beginner Lesson available from our resident PB Pro instructor. Look for our "Beginner Lessons" meetups. Beginner Lessons also include loaner paddles.
