What is Pickleball?
Pickleball Court: Pickleball is a court sport played on a badminton-sized court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. Did you know you can fit four pickleball courts on just one tennis court?
Pickleball Ball / Pickleball Paddle (aka "The Gear"): It is played with a perforated plastic ball similar to a wiffle ball and a pickleball paddle made of composite or wood about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. It can be played indoors or outdoors and is easy for beginners to learn, and can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. The game has developed a passionate following due to its friendly, social nature, and its multi-generational appeal.
How to Play Pickleball: Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles. New players can learn the basic rules quickly in a single session. No special apparel is needed – just something comfortable and appropriate for a court sport. Equipment is inexpensive and easily portable. The game can be played by all ages and is particularly popular in school P.E. programs and in adult living communities.
