Weekly Pickleball Round Robins

Head to the platform courts outside this Thursday at 6pm for free pickleball round robin matches! Pickleball combines parts of tennis, racquetball and ping pong for a fun and easy new racquet sport. No registration is required – just show up and play. Email Jeff Roman for more information.

Now Available at the Club

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis.The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels.  Pickleball is also a great game for players with shoulder problems because there are very few shots hit over your head.

The Club will be running free round robins every Thursday night starting in May from 6pm-7pm.  May 26 we will be playing at Cincinnati Country Club.  Demo paddles and balls are always available for free rentals at member services. 

Quote from Pickleball Player Greg Love

I’d have say that pickle-ball was indeed a blast to play and would be a perfect new summertime sport to pick up.  Just like anything else, the game will be as competitive as the players on the court…we had some good, fast and fun games.  It is weird playing with a waffle ball and a ‘plastic-like’ type paddle and the scoring and rules take a bit to get used to, but it’s another racquet sport that’s catching on like wildfire!
