Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America, and the Tellico Village Pickleball Club (TVPBC) is fast-growing here too. Starting with a dozen or so players on a “borrowed” tennis court 14 years ago, the Club ended 2021 with over 700 members, playing on eight tournament-sized, dedicated courts in a beautiful setting across from the Wellness Center. In the summer of 2022, we will add four more courts and a covered PicklePlex for all-weather play. Pickleball is now one of the most popular activities here in Tellico Village. The Club reaches out to new players with a welcome and an invitation to learn and to compete in the game.
8 tournament-sized, dedicated courts with 4 additional covered, all-weather courts coming soon.
The Club offers several social events during the year. We have mixers where players are invited to interact across levels. We also have tournament play for doubles, mixed doubles, and singles. Often our tournaments are followed by parties that include silent auctions, music by djs, and a dinner meal.
Player Development is enhanced by Skills and Drills lessons taught by volunteer instructors. The weekly schedule also provides inter-level playing periods. In addition, we have some private lessons as well as video lessons on this site. Two competitive tournaments and the Round Robins round out opportunities to compete.
