We are currently playing indoors weekly on Tuesday mornings between 10 and 11 am. Two indoor pickleball courts cost £12.00 per session, cost divided by the number of players.  Once the better weather arrives we hope to play outdoors where the courts are free.

Refreshments are available in the clubhouse at reduced charge for members.

As Torquay Tennis Club members you can opt in to various other sessions and events.

What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a mix of tennis, and table tennis and scored like badminton. It can be played by singles or in pairs, either indoors or outside.
Players use hard paddles a little bigger than table tennis bats, and a light air filled plastic ball called a wiffle ball to play.
