Pickle & Giggle
How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?
Pickleball is considered one of the fastest growing sports in North America, and we can say the same about the increased popularity at HRC. Pickleball is family friendly, and it has also given our senior members an opportunity to get back on court. Our “Pickle and Giggle” clinic allows you to learn the game as you play it.
How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?
Our Pickle and Giggle clinic was booked to capacity almost immediately. This clinic teaches our Members the basic skills and rules of pickleball. Due to the increased popularity, we have striped some of our hard courts, and built two more pickleball courts. We now have the capacity for 8 pickleball courts added to our existing 34 tennis courts.
