With numerous locations across North Carolina, Tennisbloc offers seasonal pickleball programs for juniors and adults of all ages that are positive and engaging. We are proud to be making pickleball and affordable and easy-to-access sport, where we have introduced the sport of pickleball to hundreds of students and counting. Our pickleball programs provide the opportunity to learn this fun sport while making new friends along the way.
Played on a smaller court than traditional tennis courts, pickleball is easier to pick up and players can quickly gain the skills needed to have prolonged rallies. This is also thanks to the graphite paddles and using a ball similar to a wiffle ball, keeping a slower pace in comparison to tennis balls.
