Welcome to Sydney's Northern Beaches Pickleball Association!
The Northern Beaches Pickleball Association is a non-profit association in Sydney which is run by volunteers. Our aim is to provide a fun and friendly environment in which to promote the game of pickleball on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, NSW, Australia. We have just under 100 members from Palm Beach to Manly and all over Sydney and surrounds, making us the largest pickleball club in Sydney and NSW. Players of all ages and experience are welcome to join us.
2021 Session Dates
After the Christmas break, we will be hosting two Wednesday evening sessions on 13 and 20 January (7 - 9pm). Regular play recommences on the following dates:
Sunday mornings at Dee Why: 10 January 2021
Thursday evenings at Beacon Hill: 14 January 2021
Saturday mornings at Avalon (indoor): 16 January 2021
Monday evenings at Avalon outdoor (to be confirmed): 18 January 2021
Wednesday mornings at Dee Why: 27 January 2021
Thursday mornings at Dee Why (new session): 28 January 2021
Tuesday mornings at Dee Why: 2 February 2021
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we had a very low-key Christmas celebration this year. On Wednesday morning some people got into the spirit of Christmas by wearing something Christmassy and after each game, the losers were required to cheerfully sing a Christmas carol of their choice to the winners. After this fun session, 20+ people joined us for a long lunch and more hilarity at the Time and Tide Hotel.

Sydney Pickleball Venues
We encourage our members to play at some of the other pickleball venues in Sydney occasionally to meet other picklers and to gain experience. You will be most welcome there, as are players from other Sydney venues and interstate and overseas visitors welcomed by us. The social aspect of pickleball is as important as the physical benefits!
In Sydney pickleball is currently being played in Avalon, Beacon Hill, Dee Why, Five Dock, Hornsby, Putney, Ryde, Sydney City and Toongabbie. Our Northern Beaches Club is the largest in Sydney and in New South Wales.
