So, what is Pickleball?
Pickleball is an active sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors. It is played using a hard paddle a bit larger than a ping-pong paddle and a whiffle ball designed especially for Pickleball.
Pickleball is easy for beginners to learn, but soon develops into a fast-paced, competitive game with just a little experience. Regardless of age or ability level, give it a try and instantly you will be hooked!
