The Lake Hartwell Pickleball Club prides ourselves on having a culture that is inviting for members of the Bell Family YMCA to give learning the game of pickleball a "shot".  As we have organized over the years, some of the best lessons have been in building relationships with one another and helping those new to the game to have a easy going and fun experience.  As we always say, just stop into the Bell Family YMCA and ask about the pickleball program.

One of the best ways to advance your technique and skills is to play with those at a similar level and add in a little fun competition.  We have organized a Seasonal Ladder League program to be held on Wednesdays utilizing a software program to rank players, schedule matches and keep track of results.  This helps each of us to see how we are progressing and to keep each of us playing with those at similar levels of play. There is an additional fee to participate in this event.



We organize and sponsor several competitive tournaments that are first and foremost, designed to be fun!  Our Annual Lake Hartwell Pickleball Clubs Spring Fling attracts over a hundred players from the local area and clubs from other areas of Georgia.  Its typically a three day event with a huge variety of ages, levels of play, mens/womens/mixed doubles all played at our indoor and outdoor courts at the Bell Family YMCA.






As we have grown in size, we have become more organized in our group lessons for various levels that is usually taught by one of our senior pickleball members.  We hold clinics that are usually taught by a professional player or those who have played competitively from surrounding areas.  This is always a great time of building friendships with those that have pickleball in common.
