Porirua Pickleball

Te Rauparaha Arena is running pickleball open nights starting on Thursday 5 November from 6pm to 8pm.

Come on your own, bring a friend or if you’re new to Porirua this is a fantastic opportunity to give something new a go.

What is pickleball?

A cross between tennis, badminton and table tennis (or ping pong), pickleball is played on a badminton doubles-sized court using paddles and a hollow, plastic ball with holes in it. (Also known as a wiffle ball). The net is slightly lower than a tennis net.

The rules, equipment and court size are specifically designed to create a fast, fun and more rallying game. 

Pickleball is ideally suited to those who may be finding the tennis court a bit too big or the badminton shuttle a little too high, to those recovering from injuries, and as a family game where those of different ages, heights and abilities can all play happily together. 

Easy to learn, but difficult to master, and very addictive!
