About Pickleball

What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It’s played on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Players use a paddle and a plastic ball with holes as doubles or singles.

What makes pickleball so fun?
The sport has skyrocketed in popularity because it’s easy to learn, affordable, cross-generational, and highly social making it the perfect activity to pick up while on vacation, gather a group of friends for an impromptu tournament, or team-building activity.
