What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a sport that can be played by people of all ages and skill levels! It’s easy to learn yet fast-paced for the experienced.
Being a mix between badminton, tennis and ping-pong, it can appease many interests.
The popular sport was created in 1965 when three dads came up with a creative way to keep their kids from being bored in the summer. How’d the name come about? It could be because one of the creator’s dogs was names Pickles, or it could be referring to a term used in rowing. Or it could be a mixture of both.
