Pickleball At Connestee Falls
While the name may sound a little peculiar, Pickleball is one of the nation's fastest growing paddle sports, combining elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It's an ideal physical activity for people of all ages and skill levels. At Connestee Falls, we proudly offer six dedicated courts and a Pickleball Club that boasts over 150 members!
Whether you have never held a paddle or you are a seasoned player, the Connestee Falls Pickleball Club warmly welcomes you to become a part of the fun! We offer dedicated times for advanced, intermediate and novice level play, All Play, a ladies' group, couples play and introductory lessons. There's something for everyone here on our courts!
You'll also find that we are more than just Pickleball. Throughout the year, we hold monthly social events including our annual Chili Cook Off and holiday-themed play times. During the on-season, we host weekly round robins and After Work socials. In September, the Club sponsors a well-respected Pickleball tournament attracting players from many surrounding states. Money raised from the tournament goes towards our community's Student Scholarship Fund, which raises scholarship funds for high school and college students in Transylvania County who are pursuing varied educational opportunities. Each fall, the Club also sponsors a fun Share the Season event that collects both needed items and money for the Sharing House – a non-profit that provides food, fresh produce and other critical needs for low-income families in the County.
We welcome all skill levels to join us in experiencing this fun sport! To stay connected to us, register for the Connestee Pickleball blog here.
