                        Overview upto 2021

Pickleball is a relatively new sport designed to give moderate exercise with a little competition. It is often described as a cross between badminton, tennis and table tennis. It is played on a badminton court with a light plastic ball and plastic paddles like oversized table tennis bats. The rules are specifically designed to limit aggression and powerplay and to encourage placement, positioning and tactics. To see it played either google it or go to YouTube and enter pickleball in the search box. Previous experience is not needed - we are all beginners - and all necessary explanation and help will be given to new members. As a group we enjoy the competition involved in the game but not at the expense of fun and enjoyment.

Bramhall's Fab Four
Four of Bramhall u3a's regular pickleball players successfully completed their Pickleball Leaders' training recently. The qualification is provided by the National Association Pickleball England. It gives the players the skills to help new groups get started, to learn the rules and to understand basic playing strategies so that newcomers to the sport can enjoy themselves from the beginning. The four new Leaders pictured below (L to R: John Bramich, Steve Goodall, Jackie Latham and Phil Kay) can now offer assistance to local groups as they set themselves up and grow. It is unusual for one club to provide four successful candidates from one course and Bramhall u3a is proud of their achievement.
