What is Pickleball?
The Basics
• The fastest growing sport in USA!
• A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
• Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
• Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.
• Played as doubles or singles.
• Great to help get you moving and fulfilling those New Year’s Resolutions
• Great way to socialize
