Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. People of all ages and skill levels are taking up the game and enjoying the fun of friendly competition. Pickleball is similar to doubles tennis, but on a smaller court. Players armed with a paddle hit a perforated plastic ball over the net. It's easy for beginners to get started and have fun right away. Experienced players enjoy a fast-paced, competitive game.
