The Pickleball Store win inaugural Franklin PPL League Season!

Updated: Feb 13

The Kingsley Tennis Centre was the venue for the final fixture of the Premier Pickleball League. 

It was the first time the PPL ran pro Clinics and there was also a PPL Festival organised by SB Pickleball and the Spicy Pickleball Academy. The Pro Clinics, led by Thaddea Lock, James Chaudry, Louis Laville and Freddie Powell were a huge success, with 32 players receiving top tips from some of Europe's top players. A lot of these players participated in the festival that followed with over 65 players enjoying sociable pickleball all afternoon!


The final fixture of the League season delivered as promised. With all to play for Team Scan played The Pickleball Store. Scan had to win to give them an opportunity of winning the league. After all matches were played, the score was 3-3 and a dream breaker was required to separate the teams. The Pickleball Store, Captained by Thaddea Lock, came through 21-17, which confirmed The Pickleball Store League Winners. Congratulations to Thaddea, Pep, Suzanne, Bernie, Emma and Emerson!

Team PicklePlay, quietly went around their business and won both of their fixtures against Advanced Pickleball and SB Pickleball, on dreambreakers, to clinch 2nd place in the league and this awarded them a bye in the knockouts! A special congratulations must also go to Jess Wilson winning MVP, winning 5 out of her 6 matches!

Following the days play, the quarter finals of the playoffs will see Team Scan take on Advanced Pickleball, with the winners playing PicklePlay. SB Pickleball will face RAQT for a spot in the semi finals against The Pickleball Store!

Which team can hold their nerve an win the inaugural Franklin Premier Pickleball League, and lift The Evelina Trophy?
