Pickleball Lessons in Kensington
We provide Pickleball lessons, courses and private tuition in W8 to help you learn and improve your game.
Kensington Pickleball Courses
One of our most popular options is our courses. We run structured lessons over 3 weeks that cover the technical skills (serve, forehand, backhand, dinks, volley etc) as well as teaching the rules and tactics of the game. During the second hour of the lesson we play so you can put into practice what you’ve learnt.
It’s a fun environment, a great way to meet people and after your course you will be able to attend our pickleball socials. You can learn more about our courses on our pickleball lessons page and to sign up please contact us through the button below.
Private Pickleball Lessons
We also offer private pickleball lessons for individuals and small groups. These sessions start from £55/hour plus court hire. All equipment will be provided. If you have a group of you it can be a great way to have fun.

Kensington Pickleball Socials
Our Pickleball Socials are drop-in sessions for pickleball players who have already played the sport and/or completed our beginner’s course. They are fun and welcoming and a great way to meet fellow pickleballers in W8.
We arrange doubles for 20 minutes and then redo the pairs depending on the results, winners and losers to ensure balanced games. This ensures a fast-paced session where you get to play lots of pickleball!
Pickleball Courts in Kensington
There aren’t any dedicated pickleball courts in Kensington as it is a relatively new sport in Central London. In fact, there aren’t that many courts to play pickleball in London full stop. However, it is possible to play on a badminton court but you will likely need to provide your own net. You will also need to mark out ‘the kitchen’ as it is slightly different in size. There are a good number of indoor badminton courts in Central London, especially in leisure centres and school sports halls.
For outdoor pickleball courts again there are no dedicated courts in Kensington. The good news is that you can play on tennis courts, basketball courts, five-a-side pitches etc. The bad news is that you will have to mark out your own court and provide your own nets.
If you are looking to play pickleball, then why not join one of our social sessions where all equipment, rackets, line markings, balls and nets are provided.
