What is Pickleball?

September 07, 2022

Pickleball is a racket/paddle sport that was created by combining elements of several other racket sports. Two or four players use solid paddles to hit a perforated hollow polymer ball over a net. The ball is much like a Wiffle ball, with 26-40 round holes. A similar to tennis, and the paddles are similar to those in table tennis

The Basics

1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.

2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.

3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.

4. Played as doubles or singles. Can be enjoyed by all ages and skill levels

4. Players wear just about anything comfortable and appropriate for the climate: Athletic shorts, sweatpants, wicking apparel, t-shirts, ETC. Comfortable court shoes are a must; sneakers or running shoes do not supply the right kind of support for the side-to-side action inherent in Pickleball.
