Pickleball - FUN, easy to learn & plenty of exercise
- More Meetups
Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation. This mini-tennis game is a combination of Ping-Pong, tennis and badminton, played with wood & graphite paddles and unique plastic balls.
It is easy to learn, provides plenty of exercise, and is played on a court smaller than a tennis court. A competitive game for experienced players.
You don't have to be strong, don't have to be quick, don't have to be athletic or good at other sports. You don't need a powerful stroke because this game is not about power but of shot placement & accuracy.
The game got its name from the inventor’s family dog, Pickles, who would chase after the errant balls off the court and then hide them in the bushes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
