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. This fun sport combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong and can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and with a slightly modified tennis net. Pickleball is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. Come out and play; bring your own paddle/ball or use one of ours! Age 21 & up.
