Pickleball Taster Sessions

As a club we are always looking for new things to offer our members and to encourage new membership. Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, Europe and the USA and we, as a club, need to find new ways to improve the utilisation of our tennis courts and attain new membership. Be assured this will not be to the detriment of Tennis at our club.  

To gauge interest we would like to offer some taster sessions run by Richard Thoms Regional Director (South West) of Pickleball England. The proposed sessions will last for 3 hours  (2 hours of coaching followed by Matchplay). One in the morning and another in the afternoon and on either Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April or possibly both days if interest is high. Sessions are typically for 8-12 people. 

Initially the offer is open to members only. Dependant on interest we will open it up to member's families and other non-members. Cost per person per session will be £6-10 dependant on attendance numbers. 

All we need at this point is to know what interest there is. We can then schedule the sessions and set them up on our booking system.  

Please show interest by e-mailing our Richard at by no later than 29th February 2024. Please state Pickleball at Compton in the subject line. Remember all we are looking for at this point is if you are interested. Once we have your interest gauged we will send out further details. Your responses will be greatly appreciated.

Who can play pickleball?

Pickleball is a sport for all ages, backgrounds and abilities. It's easy to pick up for beginners and is a great way to exercise, keep active with friends and meet new people.

I already play Pickleball. Can I attend these sessions?

These sessions are targeted at beginners but all levels are welcome. 

Will I need my own equipment?

No, Paddles, balls and nets are all supplied. Just bring yourself in your tennis attire.
