Pickleball

Pickleball at The Brookfield Tennis Centre

Welcome to our exciting new social Pickleball program. Pickleball is a fast-growing and inclusive racquet sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis.

Played on a smaller court with a lowered net, Pickleball is accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. The game is typically played in doubles, but singles play is also common. The paddle used is larger than a table tennis paddle but smaller than a tennis racquet, and the plastic ball has a unique design that contributes to the sport’s distinct characteristics.

One of the key attractions of Pickleball is its ease of learning, making it a fantastic choice for beginners. The rules are straightforward, and players can quickly grasp the fundamentals, leading to fast-paced and enjoyable matches.
