Play with us

stop-press3  Wensum Sports Hall Temporary Closure

A new roof will be fitted to the sports hall between 11th June and early August, so we will not be able to play at Wensum Sports.  There will be no play on Tuesday 12th June but from 19th June onwards we have arranged to play at the UEA Sports Park from 19.40 to 21.40 hours.  On arrival you will need to pay £0.60 to enter the Sports Park and we will then collect court fees of £2.40 per person on the courts.  Please have your car park ticket validated at reception.

We hope to arrange outdoor play on Sundays.  Please check your email for details. 

Usual sessions – but please read temporary closure notice above:
Tuesday 7.30 to 9.30pm Wensum Sports Centre  Adults (over the age of 18)

Sunday 4.30pm onwards Wensum Sports Centre  Adults (over the age of 18)

Cost: £3.00 per session plus £0.50 entry fee to Wensum Sports Centre.   (If you play regularly you will find it more economical to take out membership of the Sports Centre for a very modest sum).  There is free parking for Sport Hall users but please park in the blue Sports Hall bays and put your registration number the parking book by the entrance.

You may have one trial session at £3 before joining Norwich Pickleball Club.  Beginners are welcome to try the sport on Sundays, but Tuesdays are reserved for players with some experience.  All players must be aged 18 or over as at present we have no facilities for children. On rare occasions the courts are unavailable at the centre, so, if this is your first session with us, please email first to norwichpickleball@gmail.com, just to make sure we are there.

Additionally UEA Sportspark run pickleball sessions under their FILL (Fitness in Later Life) Scheme for the over 50’s.  A number of Norwich Pickleball Club members play at these sessions and we have featured on Mustard TV.  It is where the club first started playing before we agreed to the Sportspark incorporating our regular session into their FILL scheme.

Wednesday and Fridays 9.40 to 11am UEA Sportspark  (Over 50s)

All enquiries about these sessions should be addressed to the Sportspark, University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park, Norwich NR4 7TJ
Tel: (01603) 592398     General enquiries email: sportspark@uea.ac.uk

Playing for the first time?

We have two patient coaches, who can help you on Sundays, and our members welcome new faces.  You may have one trial session at £3 before joining Norwich Pickleball Club, so please give it a go.  Below is a recent thank you from a player trying the sport out:

“Just wanted to thank you and Alan for making me so welcome on Sunday and showing me the ropes. It was kind of you all to be so patient with a beginner. I really enjoyed it and didn’t collapse the next day!
I hope to  give it another go soon.  Best wishes,” V.
