What is Pickleball? Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. The game can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. It is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. The game can be played as doubles or singles. For more info about Pickleball visit the USAPA Pickleball site.
