What is pickleball?
Invented in 1965 and first played in Australia in 2017,
pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S. with over 4 million
players. Played on a much shorter and slightly narrower court compared to
tennis, plastic paddles are used to hit a perforated plastic ball out of the
air or after one bounce over a net slightly lower than a tennis net. The
holes in the ball make it travel slower, and the small court means fast running
isn't essential, making pickleball popular among all ages and abilities, from
children to competitive adults and retirees.
