What is Pickleball, you ask? Well, it is the fastest growing sport in America. Sometimes referred to as "tennis for old people", pickleball is popular among all age groups and leagues have formed in communities all over the States and throughout the world. Pickleball combines elements of ping pong, tennis, and badminton. It is played with solid surface racquets, a hollow, perforated ball, similar to a wiffle ball, and a 34" high net across a solid surface court (20' x 44'). Singles or doubles can play. Pickleball traces it's origin to the mid 1960's in the State of Washington on Bainbridge Island when a group of people wanted to play badminton but could not find a shuttlecock, so they improvised with a wiffle ball.
