Pickle Ball in the Village Hall

Invented in Bainbridge Island, Washington USA in 1965, there are currently over two and half million players of this sport designed for all ages. It can be played with two, three or four players on a one third sized tennis court, and combines parts of Tennis, Badminton and ping pong. The rectangular shaped plywood bats are used to hit a wiffle ball (a lightweight perforated resilient plastic ball) over the net.

Selmeston was one of the first pickle ball clubs in the UK. Further information can be obtained from Margaret and Mike Weller www.lastingimages@bluebottle.com
