Playing outside during the summer

This summer we had so much fun playing outside at tennisclub Linnaeushof. This club exists of 3 tenniscourts located within a neighboorhood in the East of Amsterdam. In the backpart on one tenniscourt there are lines drawn for four pickleball courts. More than 70 people found their way to this ‘hood’ and they came from everywhere: Dutch cities like Lelystad, Hilversum, Den Haag and Alkmaar. But also Illinois, Spokane – Washington, New York, Naples – Florida, California, Hawai, UK and Canada. And yes also Amsterdam! This succesfull pilot will be continued next summer.

Playing guerillastyle

During the summer we also played ‘guerillastyle’, setting up two temporary courts at cafe the Pacific in Westerpark. To play of course and also to promote pickleball a bit more. People passing by could join and discover pickleball!
