At the start of January we announced the first weekly sessions of Pickleball at Xcite East Calder.  Now we are happy to add a Pickleball session at another of our venues!   From Friday 23rd February, you will be able to attend a weekly Pickleball session in Xcite Broxburn at 7pm (90-minute session).

This sport is growing in popularity at an amazing speed - originally developed in the in the USA, it has become one of the most popular sport there in recent years.  It's versatility (can be played outdoors or indoors with 2 or 4 players) and ease of play make it a brilliant sport that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities. 

It's a fun game that combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It uses paddles, an airflow plastic ball and a lower net height (only 1m). Everyone can enjoy pickleball with it being a great introduction to racquet skills for school kids and a wonderful game to extend people's racquet playing careers. All of this in a lively social atmosphere.  

Our weekly 90-minute sessions continue to run at Xcite East Calder on Mondays and Wednesdays 13:30-15:00.  

This activity is available for booking now and can be booked in person, over the phone, on our website or via our app.  Pickleball sessions are included in Xcite memberships (equipment is available to hire if you don't have your own - priced at £4 for 16+, or £3 for under 8-16y).  If you are not yet an Xcite member, you can pay per session: £8.50 for 16+, £6.50 for 8-16y (equipment hire is included in this price, if required). High levels of interest may lead to more sessions being scheduled in the future.
