Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States!
It is a fun, relatively easy to play game providing good exercise to all. This all-ages, co-ed game is played both inside and out; combining the elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong using paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball over the net. Games can be played in singles or doubles.
