What Is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a fun court sport played on a badminton-sized court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball, similar to a whiffle ball, and wood or composite paddles about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. It can be played indoors or outdoors and is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast- paced, competitive game for experienced players. In addition to being fun, the game has developed a reputation for its friendly and social nature. 

How it is Played

Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles. New players can learn the game 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. It can be played at a leisurely pace or at a highly competitive level—making it ideal for all ages and abilities.
