Players of all skill levels and ages have the opportunity to experience the world’s fastest growing racquet sport, pickleball.

The newly-formed Byron Bay Pickleball (BBP) are hosting an open day on Saturday, June 22 between 9am and 12am on the outdoor courts at Byron Bay’s Cavanbah Centre.

This is an ‘opportunity to watch people play, learn the basics or improve your game in an all-inclusive format. No person is too young or too old. No skill level is not enough or too much,’ according to organiser Kylie Fleming.

‘Pickleball is the best bits of tennis, table tennis and badminton all in one.

‘BBP is an initiative of our mother ship, Northern Rivers Pickleball who caught the bug early and have been growing the sport in our area since 2020’ she said.

If the weather is ominous contact Kylie (0412 534 148).
