What is Pickleball?Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Fun for almost any age, Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America; especially in the baby boomer/zoomer demographic!
