About Pickleball

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles to hit a wiffle ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications.

Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels. 

Program Membership required.
