PICKLEBALL IN BANGKOK THAILAND!
We've been playing pickleball since January 2016. We play Saturdays 8am to 12 noon, Sundays beginning at 2pm or 3pm until 6:45pm on the Santisuk English School parking lot. Santisuk English School is not open on Saturdays or Sundays so no one will be in the office to answer your calls. We're outside playing pickleball!
We play (almost) every Saturday and Sunday. Every time we play, there'll be 12-20 players on our 3 regulation-size courts. WEATHER PERMITTING! (we have no covering over the courts in case of rain)
Date/time changes in 2019: Saturday, January 19, we'll start playing at 4:15pm NOT 8am. Feb. 23 and 24 it is likely our courts will be closed because many of us are entered in the Thailand Open Pickleball Tournament in Hua Hin that weekend. No pickleball April 13 & 14 (Songkraan holiday). Check back for other changes later in 2019.
We are the only place in Thailand developing excellent Thai pickleball players, with many at the 4.0 level and higher.
COST: first time FREE! 2nd time and after: 200 baht per person per day (for as long as you play that day).
EQUIPMENT: we do have paddles you can rent or borrow if you don't have your own. We also sell pickleball paddles. See paddle selection and prices below.
SANTISUK PICKLEBALL SHINES IN THE USA
The Bangkok Pickleball club had a chance to test their ability against some strong competition in the USA in the summer of 2018. Our Asian Champion female doubles team of Suparat and Thitiworada (Fang and Ern) took FIRST PLACE at the Wisconsin Cup in June. Ern and Griang took 3rd in the Mixed Doubles at the same tournament. Both were at the 4.0 level. Steve Cable and his close friend from college Steve Sobek took 2nd in the Men's 4.0 tournament at Royal Oak in Michigan the end of August. Before these tournaments, we could only guess at our levels. Now, we know much better where we stand. Now we can say for sure - MANY of our Santisuk players are at a 4.0 level or higher! Congrat's to the winners!
THE BANGKOK OPEN PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENT! (APRIL 6 - 8, 2018)
Congratulations to our Santisuk teachers and staff who played hard in the hot sun, winning medals at the Bangkok Open 2018! Our Griang with Lenka (from Czech Rep.), cinched 1st place for Mixed Doubles, Ern and Fang: 1st place for Women’s Doubles, Steve and Fang: 3rd place for Mixed Doubles, and Pakorn and Ohm, 4th place for Men’s Doubles! Thanks so much to all who played and served to make this event a fun and memorable one! It was also a privilege to see international players at Santisuk from Czech Republic, India, Pakistan, Sweden, U.K., and U.S.A.!
Santisuk Pickleball at the Indian Open
October 26 to 31, 2017 saw a 9-member Thailand Pickleball team, all Santisuk players, travel to Mumbai (Bombay) India to compete in the 1st Indian Open. A total of 16 pairs competed in Men's Doubles, another 16 in Women's Doubles, and another 16 in Mixed Doubles. In all, over 90 different people from at least 4 different countries competed for the top prizes. Though the Thai team was small, Thailand was well represented on the winners podium as our Women's Doubles team of Fang and Ern WON THE GOLD! Fang and Steve also took Silver in the Mixed Doubles. Join these Asian champs playing pickleball almost every Saturday and Sunday at Santisuk!!!!
