Pickleball is a fast-growing sport in the country and here at Fox Den as well! It combines the elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong and can be played on our lighted hard courts. A pickleball paddle is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping-pong paddle. A pickleball is similar to a wiffle ball but travels at 1/3 the speed of a tennis ball. Pickleball is the perfect way to introduce children to the game of tennis without being overwhelmed by the rules and guidelines. Many tennis players convert to the game of pickle ball as it requires less endurance than tennis.
Pickleball Beginner Bootcamp
This is our beginner to banger program. In just a few sessions, you'll learn the ins and outs of the game including scoring, court positions, common strategies, dinking, drops, serves, and everything about the kitchen.
Your first 3 sessions are typically Pickleball 101 lessons (you'll learn how to play.) The next 3 are structured play sessions (you'll learn how to win.)
Pickleball Beginner Bootcamp is a weekly 1 hour session for only $15. (Demo paddles available.) Contact us for more info or to sign up!

Be careful, once you get going, this sport is addictive. You'll find out why it's the fastest growing sport in the nation!
If you've played pickleball before, you know that there are often quick turn-arounds and players are on the court and off in no-time flat. But there's plenty of time to grab a snack and a frosty beverage and compare the latest paddles with the other players.
Socials are often played with up/down scoring, so that you're constantly on new courts with new players. This is a great way to form teams and get to know your fellow Fox Den Country Club picklers!
