Pickleball has arrived at Islington 2000.The game has become extremely popular elsewhere but very few residents at Islington 2000 had joined the bandwagon. That has changed now.

Beginners were keen to enrol in two classes to be held on May 4. Unfortunately, that was the week when it either rained or threatened rain, so the classes were re-scheduled for Saturday afternoon. A number of residents who hadn’t heard about the change of plans showed up at the court and an improptu lesson ensued. Again on Saturday enough novice players showed up to easily fill two courts. There may be some more classes planned for future dates, but it certainly appears that Islington 2000 pickleball players are already hooked on the game.
