Getting Started

We are so happy to hear you’re interested in playing pickleball! It’s very fun and social and it keeps you in great shape.

We suggest starting with a free Pickleball Training clinic. All the equipment is provided at the training so you can try out various paddles before buying one. You learn the basics and game rules. And you don’t need to sign up, you just show up!

The Pickleball Training sessions are listed on the ABQ Pickleball Club Calendar. The GREEN P in a square box indicates a training session, and the time and location are noted right next to it. If you point the mouse over the “P”, more details are shown.

In addition, almost all our venues welcome new players at open sessions. Go to the calendar to see what venues are available each day and upcoming events, or visit our Places to Play to find information about venues, locations, times, and contact details.
