MassMutual Center, Pickleball Palooza

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

The Springfield Thunderbirds, in partnership with Joola Pickleball, are pleased to announce that the team will be hosting its first-ever Pickleball Palooza at the MassMutual Center Exhibition Hall from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., just before the T-Birds’ 7:05 p.m. game against the Laval Rocket.

Players of all ages and ability levels are encouraged to participate in this first-of-its-kind event. The T-Birds will be hosting an afternoon of open play inside the Exhibition Hall, with a range of playing courts divided into three skill groups: beginner, intermediate, and competitive.

The event will precede the T-Birds’ contest against the Laval Rocket, which drops the puck at 7:05 p.m. at the MassMutual Center. For $65, players receive:

  • Open Court admission for play
  • T-Birds game ticket for Saturday, March 2 (Defense Zone)
  • T-Birds branded Joola Journey Pickleball paddle ($70 value)

In addition to the gift of T-Birds paddles, novice players looking to try out the sport for the first time will have the chance to learn the basics of the game from Happy Pickleball.

Interested Pickleball Palooza participants can sign up online by filling out the form online or by calling Andrew Buchanan of the Thunderbirds’ front office at (413) 417-2284.

Spectators will be able to enter by showing their T-Birds ticket to that night’s game or paying the $5 Spectator fee at the entrance.
