Pickleball at Teignbridge Leisure, Newton Abbot, Dawlish and Teignmouth.Fun, social and friendly. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

When playing pickle ball, each player will need a pickle ball paddle, which is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping-pong paddle. Players will also need a net and a pickleball. The ball is unique, with holes through it. The good news is we provide all the equipment. All you need to bring is a refillable water bottle, friends to play with and a big smile.

Pickle ball takes place at Newton Abbot Leisure Centre for all levels and abilities, including beginners. All classes are included in the Jam Packed Membership or you can Pay As you Go
