What is pickleball?

Pickleball is THE trend sport from the USA. It combines elements from badminton, tennis and table tennis.  The game is played on a court the size of a badminton field, the net is approximately hip high, the ball has holes and the paddle resembles an oversized, slightly angular table tennis paddle.

What makes pickleball so popular?

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the US. Since it is generally slower than tennis or badminton and is therefore very easy to learn for beginners and for people who are not keen on paddle-sports, it is very popular. But even if the joints sometimes pinch a little, Pickleball is a welcome alternative because it is very joint-friendly.

 

Where does this name come from?

The game was 'invented' in 1965 by 3 fathers who wanted to keep their bored children busy and cobbled together elements available from the 3 sports. Only some time later did the game get its current name - either after the Pickleboat (the boat with the remaining athletes)
