Growing Pickleball in Hendersonville - the Next Generation

Experts start as beginners, especially when they are young...

Hendersonvile Racquet Club has the goal of providing a full range of racquet sports. Pickleball courts are the latest addition to their facilities with 3 Flex Courts recently installed. But their business remains primarily tennis. In the summer, they have youth tennis/sports camps where kids aged 7-18 are welcomed. The new courts have allowed expansion of the camp offerings to include pickleball. The club recently invited a member, Rich Ferragina,, and me to teach the campers how to play.

Rich and I had 6 players aged 9-15, all of whom enthusiastically learned the basics of play. Maybe one will be the next Kyle Yates or Simone Jardim.
