WHAT IS PICKLEBALL?

Have you heard the buzz about the sport of Pickleball? It's a paddle game, played with a wiffle-like ball over a net, that appeals to all ages because it's fun and good exercise.

Pickleball is a sport that is:

  • Family Friendly - suitable for all ages, genders, body types and athletic abilities.
  • Body Friendly - good exercise that is relatively easy on the knees, hips, neck, elbows and back.
  • Social – generally played as a doubles game with partners changing after every game so it is not necessary to come with a “partner”.
  • Challenging - strategy and skill are essential components for success, with recreational players showing quick improvement in a short period, and higher skill levels challenged by tough tournament competition both locally and nationally.
  • FUN - from the first time you play, you will hit the ball and enjoy the experience!
