HOME Pickleball is a rather new sport, at least for the Netherlands. The first game on Dutch soil was played on Friday afternoon, 1 March 2013, on Java-eiland in Amsterdam. Since then an active pickleball group has developed in Amsterdam and in the town of Eefde. Recently two new groups started in Overveen and in Melick.
We have already organized one very successful international tournament. The reactions from participants were unanimously enthusiastic! Pickleball is easy to learn and a lot of fun. Currently we are hard at work spreading the pickleball virus all over the Netherlands.
It is a sport for all age groups that you can play in your own neighborhood, and a sport that is especially suitable for seniors and people who cannot participate in other sports any longer because of injuries. The fun thing about pickleball is that you can play it at all levels.
