Pickleball is fun, social and friendly. 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.
Pickleball is played with a solid paddle and wiffle ball like pickleball. It combines some elements of badminton, tennis, and ping pong and is played on a court similar to badminton and a net similar to tennis with some modifications.
On Bainbridge Island, Washington in 1965 in an effort to cure the boredom of their children, three dads, Joel, Bill, and Barney invented the popular sport. Prolific throughout the United States and Canada, the game is growing internationally as well, with many European and Asian countries regularly adding courts.
That’s the beauty of Pickleball and why it has become so popular – anyone can play.
Whether you’re 80 years old with limited physical abilities, or your 18 at the prime of physical health, there is a place for you in Pickleball. You play to your skill level with fellow pickleballers at the same level.
In fact, in 2016 the United States of America Pickleball Association sanctioned and recognized Para-Pickleball as a competitive branch of pickleball.
The point is ANYONE CAN PLAY! So grab a paddle and get out there – there’s always a pickleball game looking for a player.
