Pickleball is one of the world’s fastest growing sports – over 5 million play regularly in the USA including such celebrities as Andre Agussi, Leonardo di Caprio, Bill Gates, and George and Amal Clooney.

It is fast taking hold here in the UK, and now pickleball has arrived in Malvern. A regular pickleball groups has been set up at Manor Park Sports in Albert Road North, and it is proving very popular.

Pickleball is a mixture of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. It is played on a badminton size court using a slightly oversize table tennis paddle and a plastic ball.  It is a really enjoyable (and addictive!) game from the outset because there is only a small learning curve to start playing to an enjoyable standard.  Because it is played on a smaller court than tennis it is very sociable, and it doesn’t demand as much agility as other court sports because there is less ground to cover.

Paddles and balls are provided though if you become a regular player we ask that you invest in your own paddle.

Please note the specific venue is the indoor tennis centre at Manor Park.
