What we're about

The exciting sport of pickleball has been spreading far and wide throughout the Delaware Valley. Notable enclaves of activity can be found in Downingtown, Havertown, Haverford, Cherry Hill, Huntingdon Valley, and Jamison, to name a few. For the last eight years, pickleball players have been flocking to Mt. Airy, Chestnut Hill, and, since 2015, the Green Valley Country Club to learn the game , enjoy spirited competition, and bask in a camaraderie that has become a hallmark of the sport. Conceived as a family-oriented sport near Seattle in the mid-sixties, pickleball is a staple in school gym classes around the country, but has become most popular amongst the 55+ active adult population. All ages find the sport easy-to-learn and loads of fun. Our group has welcomed beginners who have never picked up a racquet (or paddle), serious tournament players who have ventured as far as WA, FL, AZ, and UT for competition, and all levels in between. Check us out.

Advanced Pickleball

Green Valley Country Club

$10.00

Note: The meetup fee on Tuesday is now $10. Open play on up to seven courts. Using the IFP (International Federation of Pickleball) rating system as a guide, players should have a minimum rating of 3.5. Limiting the attendance to 36 means there's never more than eight players waiting. Players play one or two games before yielding to players waiting. In the two consecutive game format, two players stay on after each game and two new players join them. Game rotation is flexible depending on interest and number of players waiting. A full line of Engage demo paddles are available if one is looking to purchase their own paddle. Franklin X (hard) and Onix (soft) balls are used. The more advanced players prefer the harder ball. The RSVP policy is strict due to the popularity of the events and the ever presence of a wait list. If one RSVPs and subsequently decides not to attend, he or she must cancel, preferably by 8AM at the latest, in order that one previously waitlisted has sufficient notice. No-shows are subject to temporary suspension from attending the meetup events. Restrooms with showers are available. Monies are collected on court beginning at 10AM. The tennis court nearest the front door is for tennis lessons. If there is activity on that court, walk behind the curtain to the left to access the pickleball courts.

Beginner-Intermediate Pickleball

Green Valley Country Club

$10.00

Note: The fee for the Wednesday meetup is now $10. Open play on up to seven courts spread over two (or three) tennis courts. Our Monday and Wednesday meetup events are intended for beginners and low-intermediate players. Previously our meetups did not designate a specific skill level. Given the vast number of players attending the weekday events, it makes sense to provide some structure to provide fairer competition for all. Generally speaking, players play one game and then come off if four other players waiting want to take the court. The ratio of players to courts is never more than five to one and almost always less, so nobody has to sit out long. Though there is no strict protocol on the arrangement of games, there is with respect to your RSVP. If you RSVP (or are on the wait list) and subsequently change your mind about attending, you must go on the website and indicate such by clicking on the X and then clicking on "Submit" at the top right corner of the screen. Failure to do so can result in temporary suspension of your privilege to participate in the meetup events. Also, when you RSVP with a +1 and are on the wait list, you will be bypassed by those below you on the list who do not have a +1, unless two spots become open. Paddles and balls (both hard and soft) are provided. Engage paddles are available for sale, demos of each model on hand. Shower facilities are available. Please be mindful of tennis lessons happening on Court 1. Walk behind the curtain to the left to reach the pickleball courts. Email the organizer if you have any questions.
