Pickleball is often described as fun, social and highly addictive by millions of converts from around the world and they want to share their secret with you.

World Pickleball Day, October 10, was created by the World Pickleball Federation to ignite the global excitement, inclusive nature and lifetime benefits of pickleball.

So, what is Pickleball?  Some describe it as a mix of tennis, badminton and table tennis but it really is all of these and more. 

Like the old saying goes, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Pickleball takes the best of each of these sports but is easier to learn, more social and a great low impact workout that can be enjoyed indoors or out in the sunshine.

Born in Bainbridge (an island off the coast of Seattle) in 1965, Pickleball has surged in popularity in the last five years. Currently the fastest growing sport in America with over 4 million players, the aim of World Pickleball Day is to raise the sports international profile. 

There are already over 4,000 players in Australia who will be more than happy to show you the ropes and get you on the court and having fun in no time.  

The City of Logan has a number of Pickleball courts with Club Beenleigh/Beenleigh Tennis Centre being one of the biggest.
