We share your passion at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club and want to provide the best experience, so we updated our courts and equipment. Learn why pickleball is so beneficial and how our clinics can help prepare you for pickleball season in Santa Barbara.

How Playing Pickleball In Santa Barbara Helps Your Mind, Body, and Soul

In 2022, a whopping 36.5 million people played pickleball. If that’s not a ringing endorsement, we don’t know what is. If the statistics don’t impress you, the health perks might; pickleball’s neurological and physical benefits make it a powerful player in the wellness world.

For example, a typical pickleball game lasts about thirty minutes, which is the amount of time your body needs in the sun to maintain vitamin D levels. Sun exposure and social bonding activities are essential for good mental health and stress reduction. You can ensure that both boxes are checked by playing pickleball on outdoor courts like ours! In addition, pickleball also requires you to use your hand-eye coordination, which improves your brain’s neuroplasticity, allowing you to learn new skills and develop better memory recall, regardless of age. 

Physically, this sport provides a low-impact way to get your cardio in and protect your joints from stress. And although you may not notice it, playing a game of pickleball engages your core through backward and side-to-side movements, which enhances agility and balance.

While these health aspects are definite bonuses, the real reward of playing pickleball is prioritizing fun and doing something just for you!

Swing In Style With Our Updated Courts and Equipment

The only thing better than an invigorating game of pickleball is playing on our beautifully updated open-air courts and using our new, custom paddles. So come soak up the sun and play your best game ever. Maybe the losing team can grab the smoothies at the earthbar cafe afterward!
