Thank you for your interest in WNC Pickleball Club.
As pickleball continues to explode in popularity around the USA and beyond, we are very fortunate to have so many skilled and passionate players — including a multi-year, multi-event USAPA National Champion (yes, he’s also a member) — living right here in Western North Carolina.
First, you should know that WNC Pickleball Club is primarily dedicated to higher-level players who expect to contend and win at tournaments.
Millions of people enjoy playing this great sport to simply “get a little exercise.” If that’s you, we whole-heartedly recommend you visit one of the many wonderful locations in Asheville and the surrounding communities where folks enjoy pickleball as a fun, recreational pastime.
Click the link below for the official “Places To Play” guide, which encompasses the entire state. It’s arranged in alphabetical order, so look for places like Asheville, Black Mountain, Brevard, Hendersonville, Waynesville, and other towns here in Western North Carolina:
To become a regular member of WNC Pickleball Club, you first need a referral from a current member. If you don’t know any current members, feel free to contact us and introduce yourself.
Every Friday, we allow 2 non-members to join us on the courts.
Non-members who are trying out on Friday must purchase a “1-Day Pass,” and agree to our insurance and liability waiver.
That weekend, the members who played on Friday vote anonymously as to whether either of the 2 non-members would be an IMMEDIATE BENEFIT to the club in terms of competition, attitude and demeanor.
If 7 additional members vote “Yes” (it’s assumed the recommending member is a “Yes” vote), that guest will be invited to join WNC Pickleball Club as a regular member.
A guest not receiving 7 additional “Yes” votes can continue practicing and improving elsewhere, and join us again on a future Friday, where there will be another anonymous vote.
If you are a competitive pickleball player who is visiting the Western North Carolina area, please refer to the Become A VISITING Member page for more information on single and multi-day passes.
Again, thanks for your interest in playing pickleball here in Western North Carolina, and we look forward to seeing you on the courts soon!
