Pickleball at the Expo...Come find out what it's all about!

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a fun and exciting paddle sport for people of all ages and levels of athletic ability, and one of the fastest growing sports in the US and around the world.  It is easy for beginners to learn, and a challenging, fast-paced, competitive game for more experienced players.

Pickleball combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It is played as doubles or singles both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court (about one-third the size of a tennis court) with a paddle and hard plastic ball.

Beginners can learn to play the game in about 30 minutes and quickly become proficient.  Those with previous experience with racquet or paddle sports can rapidly become very competitive.  Pickleball is a very social game as well as being a great workout and a whole lot of fun.

The sport is growing explosively at a rate of about 40% per year in the US as around the world, currently with about 2.5 million players according to the Sports Fitness Industry Association. The Charlotte Area boasts about 35 places to play currently, with new venues being added monthly, and hundreds of active and enthusiastic players who would love to have you join them in playing this great game. Our national association is the United States of America Pickleball Association, and lots of helpful information on the sport can be found at www.USAPA.org.

Come join us at the 5th Annual Greater Charlotte Health & Fitness Expo on Jan 28, 2017 from 9:00am to 6:00pm. We will have one court set up for continuous demonstration by top local players. A second court will offer an opportunity for anyone who would like to experience the sport themselves to get on the court with a coach and see just how easy and exciting the game can be. COME DRESSED TO PLAY!
