Have you heard of Pickleball? It’s the fastest growing sport in the country, and it’s right here with Cheltenham Pickleball!
Our mission is to promote community health, social engagement, sportsmanship and fun through organized pickleball activities, and enhance and expand programs and facilities that enable those activities.
Why is pickleball so popular? As a combination of ping pong, tennis, and badminton, it’s easy to learn but hard to master. It brings people together and builds community. It's a great workout that you can play at your own pace. It's something that younger and older folks can play together. We welcome first timers and all levels of play, so join us. Currently, play events for are adults. We’re hoping to offer youth play in the future.
