So what exactly is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a court sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played as a singles game but is usually played as doubles. It can be played outdoors or indoors on a badminton sized court for year round fun and exercise by all ages to over 80. It is an easy game to learn and most everyone can play the game after just a short time of hitting the ball, which is a 3 inch diameter hollow plastic ball with holes like a whiffle-ball that travels at about 1/3 the speed of a tennis ball back and forth across a net that is 2 inches lower than a tennis net and uses a paddle that is larger than those used for ping pong. All skill levels evolve over time to play within their peer group. It has now become the game of choice for seniors. But there is a warning: Once you get hooked on Pickleball you will probably find that it is so much fun that you will “waste” hours each week laughing, improving your game, and getting into better physical and mental shape!
