Pickleball Launched for Shepway

During Shepway Sports Trust’s Active 50 launch day we were lucky enough to trial a wide range of different sports, giving people chance to discover new activities and make friends along the way. T. We are  excited to announce that following the interest shown, we are now able to officially offer Pickleball on a weekly basis for our Active 50 members- either on a pay as you go or a subscription basis. The sessions will be held at Three Hills Sports Park in Folkestone.



Pickleball was extremely popular on our Active 50 launch day, with many attendees saying they would like a permanent session for Shepway. We are delighted to be working with GB Pickleball to bring this fun, friendly sport to the area. Pickleball will launch on Wednesday 1st March, with sessions then running weekly at Three Hills Sports Park in Folkestone between 12- 1 pm. Your first session is free and sessions are £3 thereafter. Pickleball is a fun, paddle-racquet sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played indoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net and can be played in either doubles or singles. Like walking netball, the sport is created for all abilities and easy for beginners to learn.

We look forward to welcoming many of you at our new sessions, either as participants or simply to spectate and enjoy the café facilities at Three Hills Sports Park and views across Folkestone!
