I noticed the pickleball group on Meetup and I thought it was something I would like to try. It’s been a wonderful experience. The pickleball players have ben so welcoming, patient and friendly. I’m really enjoying the social side and have quickly become addicted to the game. I’d love to go to the US or South America for a pickleball holiday.

Hi, I am 63, and used to play squash and social tennis. I heard about Pickleball when chatting with people on meetup. I saw it was being held at Clippers in Buderim and went along. It turned out to be a fun, active, social game, and relatively easy to pick up the basics to get you started.
Well, I just love the game. Thank you to the organizers who are welcoming, friendly, patient and keen for you to join them on court. I am hooked! Cannot wait until my next game.
My first introductory session was fun and it was easier than I thought! Quite diverse ages from 40-73 in our group. The instructor Mark was very helpful and patient with us and by the end of the session we were playing an actual game... Definitely coming back to play again!
