This indoor season we play at more locations than ever and full of activities. Also there are two open plays organized by subsidized welfare organisations that offer pickleball as well. Nets and paddles are provided at all the locations. If you would like to check it out, you are always welcome to drop by. At our locations first time is for free! One thing: bring clean indoor sportshoes, no black soles.

The locations in red are organised by Pickleball Amsterdam, the ones in blue by county/welfare organisation.

At all our spots you can join with or without partner and it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or more experienced. Everybody plays with everybody, we change partners all the time. For people who take their first pickleball steps always a beginner clinic will be offered. Come and discover this fun new sport! (Note: bring clean sportshoes, no black soles.)
