10am – 12noon Pickleball is coming to Greenhead Park! It will be launched with an open session on tennis courts 1, 2 and 3 which have been specially marked out for the game.  This fast growing sport combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis and is played by two or four people using solid paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball over a net.  It’s suitable for all ages, but is particularly popular with the over 50s.  After the launch, a free introduction to the game will be offered by an experienced player on Court 1 every Thursday morning at 10am, subject to reasonable weather and demand. Pickleball paddles and balls will be provided.
