Pickleball and Tennis 

About Pickleball

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, played on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, a paddle and a plastic ball.
