With about million players worldwide, Pickleball is the fastest growing paddle sport in North America. It is quickly spreading to Europe with clubs in Belgium, England, Finland, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine and now the Czech Republic. The CISP Pickleball Club is the first pickleball club that was been started in the Czech Republic. It was started in May, 2014.
Pickleball is a mix between tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played with wooden or graphite paddles and a modified, plastic wiffle ball. Pickleball is played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Games are usually played two against two.
Our group has a private CISP Pickleball Facebook group page where we have the latest updates on what is happening with pickleball at CISP. Our club is open to parents, students, staff and friends of CISP in the Prague community. Anyone in our school community is welcome to join and may invite others that are not connected with the school that live in and around Prague. Visitors or tourists in Prague are welcome to play with the group if it is arranged ahead of time.
