What we're about

This is a group for anyone who likes to laugh, have fun with a partner, and remembers what its like to be a little kid again! This has to be the easiest sport to learn on the planet earth. PICKLEBALL is a cross between tennis, ping pong, and badminton. It can be played indoors and out. You can play singles or doubles. Singles is better exercise, but not nearly as much fun. It is easier than tennis, because you serve underhand. It moves fast like ping pong. You play with a wiffleball and unlike tennis, you don't have to waste as much time chasing the balls all over the court. It is played on a court the same size as a badminton court. I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to try it. The first time I played, I laughed the entire time. We will provide all of the equipment necessary, and will even help set up Events and Demonstrations close to you. If you like it, you can eventually buy your own paddle. It is already very popular in Seattle, Palm Desert, San Diego County, Arizona, and Florida. It is played in over 1800 locations nationally.
