What is Pickleball and why you should try it?
Pickleball started in Washington State in the mid 1960’s and was a west coast sport for many years. Today, it is played in every state and is the fastest growing sport in America. Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court (⅓ the size of a tennis court) with smooth paddles and a special whiffle-type plastic ball. Most Pickleball is played as doubles and the game has a friendly-social nature that can also be a fast-paced competitive sport. The sport is low-impact and is played by people of all ages.
