What is Pickleball?
At last I found out! Pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong!
The court is a badminton size, can be on an indoor basketball type surface, or an outdoor tennis court surface. The paddle is wooden and slightly larger than a ping pong paddle the ball is a plastic base ball with holes in it!
The game is played with rules all it’s own with underhand serves, a no-volley zone, and an enthusiasm equaling the Wimbledon players.
All of the courts I have seen so far are in the 55+ Active Adult Communities.
In fact, Surprise was just the host for this year’s Canyon State Championship games.
The sport attracts tennis players who have done in their knees or elbows with its’ no-volley zone and other rules making it a game of precision and patience instead of strength and endurance. Might even be a sport for non-athletic types.
