Pickleball is racket/paddle sport that was created by combining elements of several other racket sports such as tennis, badminton and table tennis.

It is a widely accessible sport that is quick and easy to pick up. “I don’t think there is another sport where you can teach someone for an hour, and they can already jump into playing games,” Daniel previously told the official US Pickleball site.

Players of all ages and ability are welcome to join in the fun at the club with weekly tournaments available. More information via their website: www.pickleballphuket.com
