Pickleball Club

Solera Pickleball Club Information

  • Pickleball is the fastest growing sport around!

  • It is a combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong and uses a paddle and plastic ball with holes.

  • It is an appropriate game for all ages and skill levels and is easy to learn.

  • It can also be quite a challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.

  • It is a very social game and a great way to meet new friends.

  • It is a great way to exercise both your body and mind. 

  • It allows you to work on your balance, agility, reflexes and hand-eye coordination without putting excessive strains on your body.

  • IMPORTANT:  Please know your physical limitations before playing pickleball. If warranted, check with your physician prior to beginning to ensure you are able to play without risk of falling or injury.
