What is pickleball?

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. 2 or 4 players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, over a net.

Even though pickleball is like tennis, there are important differences that make pickleball especially more accessible for children and seniors.

Where can I do this?

At Cambourne Everyone Active, from 1pm to 3pm every Friday. The cost is £5.

What is New Age Kurling?

New Age Kurling is an adapted version of the original curling game which can be played indoors on any flat surface. The game can be played when standing or sitting.

Where can I do this?

We have 6 New Age Kurling sessions taking place in South Cambridgeshire. This is an ongoing programme.
