What we're about

ALL PLAYERS PLAY AT THEIR OWN RISK. MEETUP IS USED TO SCHEDULE TIMES AND SO YOU CAN SEE WHO ELSE WILL BE ATTENDING.

Come play Pickleball on 6 beautiful brand new Pickleball courts outdoors or on up to 8 indoor courts at Moorestown Tennis Club in cold weather for $8 a session. Read the description on the Meetup you rsvp to attend.

This particular meetup is open to all levels. With several levels possibly present foursomes will be arranged by mutual agreement. Winners stay and split, losers sit, for the first game. After that all play 2 consecutive games. We will do 3 hours blocks for meetups. You do not have to be present at the exact start time. Please use the comment section to let others know important information. Check the Meetup and weather before you come. If it is raining or very wet please use your judgement. Wet courts get slippery. I may not always be available to cancel the Meetup. Others usually comment.

We list 3 or more locations. Beginners should start off at the Pennsauken location where there is an instructor. There are also weekly classes available through Cherry Hill Recreation. Those who know how to play are invited to sign up for 6 courts at DeCou in Cherry Hill or on weekends at 6 courts in Hainesport. These are all public courts and we may not be the only ones using the courts, but we’ve found using the Meetup app is the best way to avoid overcrowding. You can signup 1 week in advance.

Respect the RSVP and the players. If you signed up, you are expected. If you can't come please be sure to change your RSVP. It only takes a second and will allow a wait listed person to play. If you want to skip a game just pass and wait. Foursomes are by mutual agreement. Advanced players can start with court #6 and the least advanced please start on court #1. Games are best and the most fun when all four are of similar skill.

The meetup is on public courts and always free to attend but we do ask a $10 yearly donation to cover the cost of meetup and replacing balls, etc. All excess will go to growing Pickleball in other areas of South Jersey.

Pickleball is played on a court like tennis but much smaller with a perforated ball and a paddle similar to ping pong. Games are usually played with a partner although singles can be played as well. The serve is underhand, a bounce on each side is required before you can volley. There is a 7' no volley zone in front of the net and games are played to 11 points win by two. Pickleball is game for everyone. Games can be competitive or social. Our groups will be divided that way and also by skill levels. A water bottle and folding chair are recommended for all locations. Paddles and balls can be provided to use. The meetup is free. Paddles can be provided to use and are also for sale at a discount to our meetup members. Both Paddletek and Selkirk brand paddles are available.

For more information on Pickleball visit usapa.org where you can find the rules, and more under the training and court info tab. There are also many good videos on YouTube. Pickleball doubles strategy 101 is an excellent video to teach the game.

Join us to have FUN. You will get exercise, laugh, make new friends, and come back for more and more.

WARNING: Pickleball is addictive

Pickleball at DeCou Park

DeCou Pickleball Courts

We have 6 brand new courts!! Bring sunscreen, water, paddle and balls. NO chairs on the courts. There are benches but you can bring your chair but must keep it off the court. We will start off with open meetups but try to keep play within levels. With 6 courts we will ask the most advanced to play on the last court moving to least experienced on the first. Let’s see how that goes. Courts are always free to play. $10 yearly donations are accepted to help cover costs and help grow Pickleball across South Jersey. See the host. First game winners stay after that everyone plays 2 games in a row. There is no instruction. Classes are available through Cherry Hill Township or at the Pennsauken location.

Sunday Morning Pickleball in Hainesport

Hainesport Municipal Court

Open Pickleball All levels welcome. This is not for players to learn rules, playing strategy, etc. Bring paddle, ball, chair and water bottle. The first game the winners stay and the losers sit. After that, everyone stays for 2 games. 2 new players will always be coming in and this way everyone gets the same amount of playing time. If there are more than 12 people waiting you can play to 9 instead of 11. ALL games are by mutual agreement. You don’t have to play in a game you don’t want to, you can pass your spot and wait for a different game. With multiple levels attending players have the choice of making an advanced court with NO LESS than 6 players. Everyone has the best time when they players are close to the same level. It’s no fun to either win or lose 11-1.

SunRise Advanced Pickleball

DeCou Pickleball Courts

Play at Sunrise, you'll have the rest of the day for work, sleep, whatever you want. Not for beginners, or low intermediates, and not for socializing. Dink and smash your mornings away! Meets daily M-F Bring a drink and a great attitude. We have been having great turnout, however this is an Advanced group. I welcome higher intermediates, but we are all not the same ability. Court 1 will be a king of the court game, winners stay, court 2 an Advanced Challenge Court (4.0 and up), both courts begin challenges at 6:00, however if you're already playing before 6:00, you can't start on a challenge court (reservations not accepted). Courts 3 and on will be for open play among the signed up attendees. If you are interested in a "Lower Advanced" Challenge Court, let me know. This is not meant to disrespect anyone's game, but remember we all like to play equal or better competition, including the best players. There are also many venues and times for various abilities throughout the area. Again if you feel you are a 3.5 player or up, come on out and join us, If there is a wait list, I reserve the right to move higher ranked players up, and lesser skilled players down/off as this was meant to be an Advanced Pickleball Competitive Meetup, not an Open event where you learn to play. Thanks and let's keep playing!
