TELLICO VILLAGE PICKLEBALL CLUB   Tellico Village University Partner

Pickleball is a game that is similar to tennis, but uses a smaller court, a paddle and a plastic ball.  It is an easy game to learn and most new players are playing after just a few lessons.  The lessons are free and the club provides all the equipment.  Membership in the Tellico Village wellness program is required to play pickleball on Tellico Village courts.  Beginners may be able to attend training prior to acquiring a membership.  Information about new classes and registration is available at the TVPBC website.  The club also schedules numerous social activities during the year for its members.


Villagers are invited to report their interest in learning how to play this fun sport to the president of the club.  Classes are scheduled as interested is generated. The classes are free and all equipment is provided by the club/recreation department. There is experienced instruction that begins with the rules of the game and basic stroke instruction.  Advanced training is available for players wanting to advance their skills. Particular information is available at their website.
