About Us

Sunderland Pickleball Panthers is currently the only pickleball club within the Sunderland, South Tyneside and Durham area. Members of the group have competed in many international tournaments and they meet weekly for player development, recreational games and social events. Members of all levels are welcome for open play and seeded games.

We are a recently formed club who are keen to welcome new people to play Pickleball. We are based at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland, working closely with the Foundation of Light, and are affiliated to Pickleball England.


“I was at Sunderland Pickleball today at their new venue at the Beacon of Light. It was my first session there and  a very good one and the venue is brilliant!! - brand new building and the courts are great - good surface, excellent lighting and nice and warm. In fact this is by far the best of our venues …

…if you have not yet been to the Beacon of Light I would strongly recommend that you do so - and I’m sure you will have a good time and a warm welcome.”

"Just got some games in at one of the best venues I've played in so far. 12 courts, viewing gallery, cafe/bar and restaurant. Lovely flooring, nice friendly staff. Thanks for welcoming us to the Pickleball Panthers."
