@ The RISE
Pickleball Perth WA - Pickleball @ The RISE - Pickleball was introduced to The RISE by chance! Staff where playing a game of Mini Tennis in their lunch breaks and they were informed that it was a popular sport played in America called 'Pickleball'.
It gathered a little momentum with a few players however predictably it was slow before The RISE conducted an Open Day for patrons to give the game a try which saw over 50 participants and word slowly began to spread with a number of interested people asking about the game.
The participation has now grown to have an open doubles competition and a variety of social players each week, most often seeing 3 courts in action with players of all ages and playing levels.
The RISE supplies all equipment required to play, all you need to do is turn up with correct footwear and sporting attire, and the willingness to have some fun says one of the original founders and self-confessed addict of the game, Ross Cameron.
For those players interested in purchasing their own Pickleball paddle see Bob White who plays each week and he will happily give you a trial of a variety of paddles he has to offer.
If we could transport everyone (or at least those with governance over what facilities are provided for what sports) to the intended Pickleball Capital of the World in Naples, Florida, for just 24 hours, we would have a multitude of venues clambering to over courts for the sport I am sure.
However from very humble beginnings and predictably a slow start with just a few players at first, we now manage to have enough players to enjoy the allotted times at The Rise which sports 3 court spaces each Wednesday evening.
