Chester

Pickleball

The aim is to have fun, socialise and get fit in a way that is suitable for the age range of typical U3A members. Pickleball is a cross between table tennis and badminton. Played on badminton court but with 3 foot high net, large table tennis type bat, a hollow plastic ball and is usually played as doubles.

It is a game ideally suited for the U3A age group where skill is the most important factor and you can be playing after just 5 minutes instruction. Comfortable clothing suitable for racquet sports should be worn whilst white soled gym shoes are a requirement. Equipment is provided and instruction given and we play each Monday from 10 to 12 at the Northgate Arena, Chester.

Contact Dave Smith if you would like to know more.

First Session - On the right is a photo from the very first Pickleball session, held last Monday, 9th December, with 5 members in attendance. We had the Cheshire coach from England Pickleball come to give us some training and it was a an outstanding session, enjoyed by all. The next session is on the 16th when we have the NW Director of England Pickleball coming to continue the training and support for the group. The January meetings are Mondays the 6th and 13th so anyone who would like to experience this great game should come along to Northgate Arena at 9.45 to see how much fun and exercise you can have for £4!
