Our Approach

Learning a new sport can be daunting and enough to put many people off. Because of the nature of pickleball, and the fact the majority of players are beginners, everyone is in the same boat. You will swing and miss the ball many times over and so will everyone else and when you do miss shots that is when the laughter begins. This we can guarantee.

At Gold Coast North Pickleball we will teach you how to play pickleball in a supportive environment. We are very patient teachers!

We currently play on eight courts at Hope Island Resort Tennis Centre and also play at other locations on the northern end of the coast. We try to segregate our beginners and advanced players, until our beginners request to play with the advanced players. We nurture our beginners and build their confidence.

Founder’s Story

Mr & Mrs Pickles - addicted to pickleball!

Let us introduce ourselves… Mr and Mrs Pickles 🤣 – a.k.a Gayle and Colin Wilson!

From the first time we picked up a paddle and hit that yellow ball we both were hooked. For years we were looking for ‘something’ on the Gold Coast. We wanted to be active and meet people and it needed to be low cost. Tough call when we wanted to play pickleball multiple times a week. We found a community tennis court, found a sponsor for our paddles and balls being Halcyon Greens Pimpama and started this group. Numbers increased so we forked out ourselves and bought three nets so triple the amount of people could play with us.

Because of our passion for pickleball we now share it others where we conduct learn to play sessions as volunteers.

If over 3 million people play pickleball in the USA, it is obvious there is something special about this sport. We know it, we just have to convince others to do the same. So please, leave your comfy couch and give pickleball a try soon. You will wish you started sooner!
