This is a group for anyone interested in playing Pickleball or equally important, for anyone who wants to learn how to play the sport. Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffle ball. Although Pickleball appears to be very similar to tennis, there are key differences that make Pickleball more accessible to a wider range of players, particularly children and seniors. Chief among these differences is the speed of the Pickleball ball which typically moves at one-third of the average speed of a tennis ball. Equally important, however, is the size of the court which is just under one-third of the total area of a tennis court. This smaller area combined with the slower moving ball makes Pickleball much easier to play than tennis. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Originally invented as a backyard pastime, Pickleball is now an organized sport represented by national and international governing bodies. Pickleball is addictive and as a result, the sport is spreading rapidly across the country. In fact, Pickleball is one of North America's fastest growing sports. Join us and find out why.
