Are you looking for a new sport that combines the best elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis? Look no further! Pickleball is the answer. Let’s dive into pickleball, how to play it, and why it’s the perfect addition to your fitness routine!

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a paddle sport that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It was invented in 1965 on Bainbridge Island, Washington, by three fathers looking for a fun activity for their families. The game combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis, making it an enjoyable and accessible sport for players of all ages and skill levels.

Played on a badminton-sized court, Pickleball uses a perforated plastic ball (similar to a whiffle ball) and composite or wooden paddles. The sport is suitable for both indoor and outdoor play, and it has become a popular choice all over the US!

How to Play

Playing Pickleball is simple and easy to learn, making it a great activity for players of all ages. The game can be played in singles or doubles format and follows a basic set of rules.

To start, each side takes turns serving the ball underhand from behind the baseline, aiming to land it in the opponent’s service area. Players then rally the ball back and forth, either letting it bounce or volleying it (hitting it without letting it bounce) outside of a designated non-volley zone near the net. Scoring occurs when one side commits a fault, like hitting the ball out of bounds or failing to clear the net. The game typically continues until one team reaches 11 points, with a win-by-two rule in effect.
