Welcome to Pickleball Ireland's Website. This is our first attempt to set up a site so please accept its limitations. I am sure in time we will be able to offer you a beautiful new site with all the trimmings.
Pickleball Ireland was set up to introduce and develop this fabulous new sport to the island of Ireland.
Although originally played largely by Senior Citizens in the US, this sport is now played by every age group. No other sport offers what Pickleball does for the entire community. It can be played by all ages and genders and by people who are not normally sporty.
It is so easy to take up that within minutes of stepping on court for the first time you can start a competitive match.
Pickleball is bringing older people back to activity, offering so many health benefits and of course a great social life. We are just a nice bunch of people.
Pickleball explained in simple terms
Pickleball is tennis on a badminton court. Every town and village in Ireland has badminton courts from school sports halls, and community centres to small church halls (or in the case of Donegal Town... an old ballroom). So if you have a badminton court...you are ready to go!
We use specialised paddles and balls and there are a few really good rules that make it a very unique sport.
Paddles range greatly in price so there is one to fit every budget....starting at roughly €20 up to €150.
Anyone considering trying the sport should contact us through this site.
