Discover the excitement of Pickleball, included in your membership at our gym! This rapidly growing, fast-paced game is capturing attention nationwide.

Pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis, and ping pong, played on a court with dimensions similar to a doubles badminton court. The net, slightly lower than a tennis net, adds to the unique challenge. Using a paddle and a polymer ball, Pickleball is easy to learn, making it accessible to players of all skill levels.

Join us for the fun! Guests can purchase Punch Cards at our front desk, and we offer lessons and skill development to enhance your game. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to stay active and engaged at The Sports Center of Morehead!

Rachel and Ricky Barr, Club Pickleball Pros

Offering lessons for all skill levels

About Rachel: 

I’ve played sports my whole life but fell in love with pickleball about 4 years ago, now I play at a 4.0 level. When I’m not on the Pickleball court you can find me playing (almost) any sport, relaxing with a good book, or at the beach! Summer is my favorite time of the year; there is nothing better than reading on the beach (of course I’m a kindle girly)! I have lived here my entire life and couldn’t dream of a better home! My favorite thing about pickleball is that once you understand the basic rules, anyone can play! I always say, it’s a sport for everyone!

About Ricky:

I’ve always been passionate about sports and still play in most of the adult leagues around town. I enjoy the beach, spending time with friends and family, and, of course, pickleball! I am a native to Morehead City and graduated from ECU, Go Pirates! After playing pickleball for 4 years, and now playing at a 4.5 level, my favorite thing about it is having fun with friends while exercising and being competitive. Pickleball truly is a sport that anyone can play regardless of age or athletic ability. I can’t wait to help you with your game!
