WHAT IS PICKLEBALL?

Pickleball can best be described as a mix between tennis, badminton, and ping pong, using a flat paddle and a plastic ball with holes. The court is the size of a badminton court, measuring 20 by 44 feet. It can be played both as a singles and a doubles game. It can be played both indoors and outdoors.  The fact that it’s a low impact sport is what’s made it so popular among players of all ages.
