Pickleball Has Arrived in the Algarve, Portugal!
Pickleball is an exciting new racquet sport that, like tennis, is designed for singles or doubles. Although it is officially classed as a raquet sport, the game is actually played using wooden or plastic paddles.
The idea of the game is to hit a perforated ball over the net of a Badminton sized court using modified tennis rules. Unlike tennis, where having a powerful serve often gives a player a distinct advantage, Pickleball rallies must include a bounce on each side of the net before volleying the ball is permitted.
Factor in the lower net and perforated ball and you have a game that is ideal for people of all ages and abilities.
Now you can play Pickleball in the Algarve, Portugal at Jim Stewarts Tennis Academy in Quinta do Lago. We have a purpose built Pickleball court and you can buy or rent all of the equipment you need to play this fantastic game directly from our onsite Algarve tennis shop.
