Pickleball Fiesta “Beginners” edition 2024

Pickleball Fiesta “Beginners” edition 2024 in Dublin was a resounding success!

On the weekend 9 -10 of March 2024 Dinking Hub Ltd and PickleballAdri successfully delivered the first Pickleball Fiesta in Dublin 16 in the St. Tiernan’s Community School sports hall. This edition was released with the aim to encourage new pickleball players to test their skills and to get into a competitive mode in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The event was attended by over 90 pickleball players from all 4 provinces of the isle; Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster and each player was given a goody bag with different items but the most appealing one, was the ticket to enter a raffle with the opportunity to win one of the 11 prizes that had a total value of more than 500 Eur. Something never seen before in the country in a beginners competition. The items for the raffle were sponsored by 4 of the biggest pickleball brands in the world and country; Joola, Zcebra, Maverix and RDS.

On Sunday, along with the mixed doubles beginners matches, a competitive exhibition of Advanced players was held to showcase, encourage and incentivise new players to keep improving in their development of their skills.

All events took place in an atmosphere full of joy and camaraderie, which is what distinguishes pickleball from other racket sports. In both days friends and family members of the players attended the venue to support them and watch the matches, with some of them regretting their decision to not participate due to “stage fright”.

The feedback we got from players was clear and consistent during the whole weekend, “the event organization has been spotless” which is something we value dearly and treasure. All and all it was an amazing weekend in which pickleball was the main character.

Once again Dinking Hub and PickleballAdri demonstrated their commitment to deliver great quality pickleball events to promote the sport in every corner of the Emerald Isle.

Thanks to all participants, spectators and our sponsors for making this event one of its kind. Congratulations to all medal and raffle winners. The Pickleball Fiesta continues upwards and onwards!
