Sydney pickleball venues on the beautiful Northern Beaches are rapidly growing in numbers and consequently pickleball is booming there! We currently play at Dee Why, Beacon Hill and Avalon Beach, but with the wonderful support of Northern Beaches Council, there will soon be many more pickleball courts in Sydney.
Our Association warmly welcomes picklers from other clubs in Sydney, New South Wales and Australia, as well as overseas visitors, but please let us know if you are planning to join one of our sessions. We limit the numbers so as to give everyone sufficient time on the court. For insurance reasons, we require all visitors to join our Club after they have played with us once.
First-Timers: Please see our NBPA Meetup Protocol and Procedure Policy.
Play pickleball in a friendly, relaxed environment. All standards are welcome! If you have never played before, our regulars will be happy to explain the game to you to get you started.
Bring a pickleball paddle if you have one, otherwise you can borrow one of ours until you are ready to purchase your own. You will also need to bring a bottle of water to stay well hydrated. Wear comfortable clothing and non-marking tennis or indoor sports shoes … sandals, thongs and running shoes are not permitted, because they do not provide enough support for playing pickleball.
PLEASE GO TO OUR NORTHERN BEACHES SYDNEY MEETUP SITE TO CHECK THAT THESE SESSIONS ARE ON.
