£350raised of £1,000 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £350 to bring communities together and promoting health and wellness for the baby boomers with easy access to outdoor Pickleball courts.

    Norwich, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 25th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I would like to make Pickleball more accessible to people in the Norwich community, bring them together by being active and have fun.

    The aim is to find a location which can host 3 to 4 permanent outdoor Pickleball courts with a surface safe to play on all year around, the funds will be used to provide needs needed to run the outside Pickleball play sessions.

    Therefore I would like to ask the people of Norwich and those within the Pickleball community for a kind donation to get the ball rolling.

    The outdoor Pickleball courts will enable:

    * Baby boomers to be more socially and physically active.
    * People who are facing obesity to get active and fitter.
    * (Grant)Parents doing activities with their (Grand)children together.
    * To promote social inclusion.
    * People to do something fun and active.

    All could use this new facility by starting to play Pickleball, and not to forget all the existing Pickleball players can find flexibility when they would like to play.

    Why PLAY Pickleball?????
    Pickleball releases a lot of positive energy.
    (so if you are feeling down a few games of Pickleball can get you out of the dumps again).
    Pickleball is easy on the joints and it promotes cardiovascular health.
    (in the USA 60% of people playing this fun activity are over 60).
    Pickleball is easy to learn.
    (if you always struggled with sport you might find that Pickleball is different, no stigma attached).
    Pickleball is fun to play.
    (there is lot of laughter and banter on the courts but watch out you might get hooked).

    Every penny counts so your donation is very much appreciated, plus it would help if you could share this with your neighbours.

    It the target amount is not reached, the funds collected so far will go towards a follow up crowdfunding page.

    Looking forward to see you on the provisional courts in Waterloo Park soon.

      Thank you everyone for your generous donations, In the spring there will be a follow up cause to look for a more suitable location or different options, this money still can be used to either paint lines on tennis courts, paying for court fees, buying nets or to continue to find a permanent location for outdoor Pickleball courts. Donated online is £350 and the collection box hold another £35, CF will take 5% plus a small handling fee of which I will receive a break down in a few days. Pickleball Jeff

      One week in and £200 raised only 96% to go, at the moment 2 temporary courts have been marked out in Waterloo park, I will be there Monday afternoon from 3pm to demo Pickleball a bit and to answer your questions. Pickleball is great to promote health and wellness for the baby boomers, or for people who don't want to be obese any more or just for people who are looking for a fun activity which they can do with their family and friends. Looking forward to see you on the courts soon. Pickleball Jeff
