What is Pickleball?
Invented in 1965, pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America. A combination of tennis, ping-pong and badminton, pickleball is played with a paddle and wiffle ball on a court approximately one-fourth the size of a tennis court. The game of pickleball is great for all ages and skill levels and only takes a short amount of time to learn.
Perhaps most importantly, it gets employees moving as each game of pickleball results in approximately 500-750 steps – or the equivalent of about a ¼ mile. Pickleball is also a great stress-reliever and helps build employee morale.
Physical activity is the closest thing we have to a wonder drug. Physical activity lowers the risk of high blood pressure & stroke and improves one's aerobic fitness, mental health and cognitive function.

Don't Know how to Play Pickleball?
Never heard of pickleball and don't know how to play? No problem. Pickleball is a very easy game to learn. We will have instructors on-site beginning at 8:00 AM for pickleball instruction, scoring & rules clarifications. It's a game you can literally learn and excel at in a very short time — even in just an hour! We will also have "experienced" court monitors on each court to assist in scoring, rules, etc.
Schedule a Time On-Site for your Employees!
If learning the game the morning of the challenge seems too daunting, we encourage you to schedule a time onsite at your organization prior to the tournament to introduce the sport to your tournament participants — or employees at large. We can even organize an intra-company pickleball challenge (and/or lunch-and-learn) amongst the employees within your organization. What a great activity for physical activity, stress-reduction and team-building!
Pickleball — Great Wellness Programming Option
Pickleball is a great (and unique) corporate wellness programming idea that instills positive habits in your employees. Because we have a strong pickleball footprint in Cincinnati, Mason, Dayton and surrounding areas, we are also able to plug people into local pickleball clubs — because once you play it for the first time you're going to want to continue playing! I can almost guarantee that! :) Contact us today at (513) 972-8247 if you would like to schedule a pickleball event or lunch-and-learn at your organization.
Sponsorships are available. Please contact us at (513) 972-8247 if your organization is interested in partnering with us in this unique corporate wellness event. It is sure to get employees moving, reducing stress and will build employee morale.
