What Is Pickleball?

Pickleball is fun, easy to pick up, and one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. It is played on a small, badminton-sized court, and combines the rules and techniques of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. Players use a perforated plastic ball, which is passed back and forth over a net with paddles. This game is perfect for kids, seniors, and everyone in between.
