Play mash-up of tennis, badminton and ping pong at Lancaster Tennis Club
Lancaster Tennis Club is one of the first in Lancashire to have introduced Pickleball.
The court is the same size as a tennis mini court, but with different line markings and very different paddles and plastic balls.
Different scoring too but anyone who has played table tennis, badminton or tennis before will adapt to it very quickly.

The Club was very lucky to have been awarded a grant from the Eric Wright Charitable Trust to fund the purchase of the net, paddles and balls and the expensive paint needed to transform the court.
A number of the Club's existing members have already tried out this new game, mostly as doubles, but the Club also has a pickleball only membership fee for anyone who doesn't also want to play tennis.
