Bob, welcome to our forums!

I've heard of Pickleball though I know of no groups or associations.  Nor have I ever played it.

I am not sure it has much to do with permaculture since it is a game played on a court, right? Similar to a tennis court?

Are you looking to find places to play pickleball? Or people to play pickleball with? Or are you looking for international communities that offer pickleball?

How about "Disc Golf"? This game has been discussed in our forums.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for responding!  :)

Yes, the post is about Community + Permaculture.

I added another input not unlike "good schools". (pickleball)(p/ball)

You are correct about the nature of p/ball.  It's similar to tennis/badminton/ping pong all put together.
(loads of videos on youtube. search "pickleball 5.0")

It's said to be the fastest growing sport in North America.



To answer your questions:

Places to play
There's a great website that maps the places to play globally.

I'd love to see a similar map for Permaculture communities.
Ref. attachment


Disc golf is cool but I don't have the opportunity play much.


As I look for location to put down my permaculture roots I often reference the places to play map.
I just thought I'd post up here thinking maybe I'd get lucky finding a community with both inputs.


Relative to Permaculture communities

Does anyone know if there's any sort of Permculture mapping tools/websites?  
I know it's sometimes a little counter to our needs but sure would be nice.


Regardless thank you so much for your input.  :)
