PICKLEBALL is a paddle sport you can learn in minutes and play for a lifetime.

It brings together elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong to create a sport that’s fun for all ages and skill levels, but gets fast-paced and exhilarating at competitive levels.

How is pickleball different to other net sports?

It’s easier to pick up than many net sports

It’s lower impact than tennis, so it’s easier on the body

It focuses on quick reflexes and aiming, rather than spiking the ball, powerful serves, or running speed

These differences open pickleball up to a greater range of players. Whether you’ve been playing tennis your whole life, or you’re walking onto a court for the first time; whether you’re young, old, or in between; whether you’re strategic and competitive, or just want to get involved in something fun, social, or active… PICKLEBALL is for you.

Brand new to Pickleball?
We highly recommend you attend one of our Come & Try Sessions for a thorough introduction to the sport; here you will learn the rules, court positioning, how to hold your paddle, and our club style of play. Our hosts can then suggest further sessions for you based on your ability.
These Come & Try sessions are usually held each Friday at Shaw Park (Wooloowin), each Saturday at Aspley East, each Tuesday at The Gap, each Sunday at Mt Gravatt, weekly at Rocklea and Wakerley, or monthly at Balmoral on a Saturday. We also hold two sessions on a Saturday at Albion (booked via Meetup app).

🩷 "Jay's 'Fun Community' Pickleball sessions are brilliant and inspiring. Whether you're a beginner just starting out or an advanced player looking to hone your skills, these sessions are incredibly accessible and adaptable to all levels. Jay and the team take immense pride in providing all the support and development any player could wish for, and their dedication to fostering growth at every stage of the game is evident, as is their passion for the sport and for teaching it. The banter and laughs are top-notch too." ~ Lauren R.

🧡 "Excellent session Pickleball FUN & Jay! Great to have such an enthusiastic coach who eats and breathes pickleball fun and instructions are given clearly and demonstrated twice for those of us who learn best by observation 😁" ~ Jackie D.

🩵 "The opportunity to play singles against quality opponents is an absolute bonus. At Doncaster Secondary College on a Thursday night, you have the option of either full court, skinny or 8 minutes of drills for each rotation. When you want to really challenge yourself you can play against Jay. At the very least it can be a great learning experience. Jay is always happy to provide feedback on technique and strategies if requested. The players can change slightly each week but the healthy competition in a relaxed and supportive environment does not. I thoroughly recommend this session, which is open to everyone, to any players looking to improve their game." ~ Greg

💖 "Pickleball with Pickleball FUN is a fantastic experience. Jay is an organised, patient, and knowledgeable coach who takes us through drills and match-play scenarios to help us to understand strategies and techniques. Above all, it is a great workout and heaps of fun and everyone is welcoming and friendly." ~ Ed F.

🤎 "Great clinic for increasing skills, gameplay strategy and different shots. Being able to apply them in drills and then in real match play straight after was awesome! Will definitely be back." ~ Sam D.

💜 "Had an excellent drills and coaching session on Friday night. Jay is a brilliant strategist and coach and I picked up so much over this 3-hour session. Would highly recommend Pickleball FUN Coaching to anyone looking to learn the sport or level up their game. Very much looking forward to the next bash (/dink!)" ~ Pete W.

💚 "Jay’s ability to connect with all ages and levels of play to improve their game is clear to see. The explanations provided for the strategies and skills were a great help in understanding the game and how to improve and ultimately succeed. Taking the time to stop and read the opponent’s shot before moving has helped me immensely. I recommend Pickleball FUN sessions for all those looking to improve their Pickleball game!" ~ Simone N.

💛 "Jay and Pickleball FUN has taken his coaching to the next level. Last night Jay took the time to explain the type of shot you should consider attempting depending on your court positioning. For me, it gave me a new perspective on playing the percentages and managing a rally to be more competitive. We initially practised drills for different sections of the court before progressing to match play to utilise the skills we were working on. I would highly recommend this Pickleball FUN session to anyone interested in improving their game." ~ Greg L.
