As many of you know, this past September my parents (Bob & Bev Youngren) and I visited Madrid, Spain for 9 days for a fun-packed pickleball tour and the International Pickleball Tournament. It was an amazing experience, and gave us the chance to explore local culture, architecture, food, and of course, make new friends!

2016 is even a more exciting year for VIVA Pickleball Tours as they expand to Barcelona, and so I’m here to tell you- join the funFrom beginner to advanced, pickleball players of all skill levels are welcome. Play pickleball in Barcelona, Spain!

Pickleball in Spain

Mike Hess and I will be the “teaching pros” on the tour from May 31- June 8, 2016 in beautiful Barcelona. It is an awesome opportunity to experience everything Barcelona has to offer, play pickleball with old and new friends, and pick up the winning tip or two. Get pointers on how to improve your playing technique, shot selection, strategy, mental game and much more!

Spain Pickleball

While Pickleball will be a highlight of the trip, there are so many other cool opportunities to explore the Catalonian region of Spain and see the famous sights.

From exploring Las Ramblas and “Old Barcelona”, the picturesque Costa Brava, to Gaudi’s masterpieces- especially La Sagrada Familia- you’ll get a full does of Spanish architecture and history. Of course, no trip to Spain is complete without wine tasting, gourmet foodie experiences and a Flamenco dinner show!

Watch some of the beautiful sights of Barcelona!

Make sure to sign up for the Barcelona tour from May 31 to June 8, 2016 before it sells out! It did sell out last year, for the maximum number of fun seeking, pickleball loving, culture explorers is 38.


Don’t miss the fun- we want to play pickleball with YOU in Barcelona!
