Pickleball Europe is currently experiencing a relaunch which is a fancy way of saying our website is like a really hapless but enthusiastic 3.0 pickleball player.  Please be patient as we figure out the world wide web equivalent of consistently making our serves, the two bounce rule, and the third shot drop.

Hi All. Most of you will by now have seen adverts for both the Scottish and English Open Championships. These events are for ALL ages and ALL standards. It would be a wonderful experience for ALL players. Please give thought to entering these events. The more of us that enter, the more support we can give each other and the more fun we all have. We would also all be supporting the growth of this great sport in the U.K. I really hope that SLAP have a large group entering both events xx ... See MoreSee Less

Nytårsturnering!

29. december holder vi en hyggelig nytårsturnering.

Formatet bliver således at man selv finder sig en partner og melder sig til sammen. Man spiller med den samme partner i hele turneringen. (Blandet køn). Vi laver turneringsformen efter antal tilmeldte.

Har man ikke en partner, kan man melde sig til uden, og så prøver vi at sætte jer sammen i par på selve dagen.

Tilmelding foregår på holdsport, ens partner påfører man i kommentarfeltet.

Har man tilmeldt sig, så kommer man! 😉 I tilfælde af ulige antal tilmeldinger uden partner, skærer vi den sidst tilmeldte fra.

Bagefter byder vi på lidt forfriskninger og skåler det nye år ind.

Let the games begin! Vi glæder os til at se jer!

Report of Day two of the SSIPA World Championships, Denton. Texas. Advanced weather forecast had predicted heavy rain. Tournament directors decided to hold the days events indoors, which was a wise move. The venue for the mixed doubles was moved to Fort Worth an hours drive from Frank Arico and Ian Wilson’s base in Denton.
For Frank and Ian it was a day of surprises with ups and downs on court. The day started with a surprise for our intrepid pickleball travellers. An announcement was made over the tournament public address system. The organising committee had decided, as Frank and Ian had travelled so far to participate in the tournament, they would each be presented with a new pickleball paddle. By all accounts they were not from the cheaper end of the scale.
Frank was entered in the 65 to 69 age bracket, skill level 3. Frank, having never played with his partner before the first game, started with a great win. Eventually Frank was eliminated from the event prior to the medal stage.
Ian was entered in the 70 to 74 age bracket skill level 3.0 with his female partner who lives in Fort Worth. Due to the reduced number of participants in the 3.0 skill level they combined the 3.0 with the 3.5’s. This put Ian and his partner at a disadvantage. Having never played together before the first match they did exceptionally well by beating a number of 3.5 pairings. However they were knocked out one game short of winning a medal.
The second surprise of the day for Ian turned out to be, he won the Gold Medal for the 3.0 skill level. Apparently, because they combined skill levels it was unlikely anyone from the 3.0 skill level would win a medal in the combined group. To overcome this issue, the medal distribution for the 3,0’s was based on how far they progressed. Ian and his partner were within one game of the medal stage and the last remaining 3.0’s. Congratulations Ian on winning Gold.

Pickleball featured as a "have a go sport" at the Kent PE Conference in January, I was approached by the CEO of Association for Physical Education Sue Wilkinson who asked me to write an article about Pickleball for the AfPE magazine which is distributed to 10,000 members and schools across the UK.

It's been great to be contacted by so many PE leads and contacts telling me about the great post in the Summer edition.

I'm delighted to be spreading the word to the next generation of players and continually coaching Pickleball to sporting departments so that they can engage children through the sporting curriculum in education.
