Sessions for a new paddle sport will be held regularly in Beccles after two trial events proved overwhelmingly popular.
Pickleball sessions will be running each Saturday, 10am till noon, from November 11, at The Venue in Sir John Leman High School.
A spokesman for The Venue said: 'The game is suitable for players of all ages and has been particularly popular with the older generation.
'It is played over a net with paddles and lightweight balls.
'The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn but can develop into a fast-paced competitive game for experienced players.'
