PICKLEBALL – Ages 18+
Pickleball is a paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. It was invented in the mid 1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but has become one of America’s most popular growing sports among all ages. Four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a whiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. Play will begin end of May.
