The GB Pickleball Summit, taking place in Staffordshire on 29th October 2016, will be a day packed full of dink, drop, lob and exciting play for the growing legions of UK pickleball addicts.
The Summit kicks off with open play to get the blood pumping and shots humming, as well as an opportunity to meet and compete with fellow players from all over Great Britain.
Meet the team at GB Pickleball and learn all about their ambitious plans to grow this exciting sport across the UK, present your questions, talking to the funding team about funding available in your area and how they can support you in the set-up of new clubs and grow existing ones.
Step on court with GB Pickleball athletes Sheena Maclean-Bell & Dave Wood (the only GB Mixed Doubles pair to represent the UK in Naples, FL this year at the US Open) who will share insider secrets, feedback from the tournament, as well as insights and tips into improving your game.
