Pickleball FUN Community (PFC) & Princess Hill Secondary College (PHSC) SMASHING SATURDAY Session offers 4 indoor Pickleball Courts, with all equipment including a variety of demo paddles (Joola, Hustle, Ronbus, Obelisk, Hudef, TMPR etc.) to try out for all levels of players from Juniors, Beginners, Intermediate, and Advance during your Pickleball FUN session.

If the session IS NOT FULL, 1 Court will be DEDICATED to basic Pickleball DRILLS where players can perform specific drills with each other to help improve their game or to strategise for any upcoming local or national tournaments while the other 3 Courts are available for Match Play.

However, if the session IS FULL then all 4 courts will be dedicated for Match Play throughout the entire session. 4 players off, 4 players on rotation after each game to 11 points, win by 2.

** 🥰 VERY IMPORTANT PICKLEBALL FUN SAFETY MEASURES FOR YOU 🥰 **

When playing Pickleball, as with any sport and physical activity, there is always a risk of injury. Therefore, we all must take responsibility for our safety and take the necessary precautions to prevent injuries.

👍 To ensure that everyone is having awesome fun and staying safe with the game, we would like to remind all members of the following safety measures during each pickleball coaching and social session:

✅ 1. DO PROPER WARM-UP ACTIVATION EXERCISES BEFORE YOUR SESSION: Warm-up activation exercises are very important to prepare your key muscles for the game and prevent injuries. NOTE: We have a list of activation exercises designed for pickleball which you can get from the session host.

✅ 2. PLAY WITHING YOUR LIMITS: Do not push yourself beyond your limits. Know your capabilities and play accordingly.

✅ 3. DRINK CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT YOUR SESSION: Staying hydrated is important to prevent cramps and other injuries.

✅ 4. BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS: Always look out for other players, spectators, and potential hazards on and near the court.

✅ 5. WEAR PROPER INDOOR COURT SHOES: This will provide adequate support, grip and again prevent any unnecessary injuries.

✅ 6. DO NOT PEDAL BACKWARDS TO RETRIEVE BALLS: Avoid running backwards to retrieve balls as this can cause injuries. Instead, turn around and run forward to retrieve the ball.

✅ 7. LET SOME CHALLENGING SHOTS GO: It's certainly okay to give up a point to avoid injury.

By following these 7 key safety measures, we can all have fun playing pickleball safely and reduce the risk of injuries. 🤗 We all must look out for each other and create a safe and fun environment for everyone. 🥰
