Come along to Burnley Leisure to have fun, socialise and stay active with our Active Adults classes which includes tennis, badminton and pickleball – aimed at 50+.
Pickleball is a flourishing and fast-growing sport in which two or four players use solid paddles – like large table tennis bats – to hit a perforated plastic ball over a net.
Played on a badminton court, the net and rules are similar to tennis, but the sport prides itself on being much easier to pick up. The reduced speed of the ball and smaller size of the court makes it the ideal game for older people.
Pickleball has been played in the USA since the mid-1960s but is only now starting to break through in the UK and the wider world.
You can also use the gym and our pool during your Active Adults session.
