Chatham Kent Pickleball Club is partnering with the Optimist Club of Chatham to introduce children to the world’s fastest-growing sport. Pickleball is described as a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. The game is easy to learn and tons of fun to play.

At our five (5) day pickleball camp, participants will enhance their hand-eye coordination, agility, balance, and enjoy social interactions, while learning, the game of pickleball. It’s so much fun that children won’t even realize the benefits they’re receiving, which can significantly improve their mood and overall mental wellness. Participants will be guided through the fundamentals, of serving, receiving, volleying, drop shots, positioning, rules, and scoring.
