Pickleball is Sweeping the Nation
Said to be the fastest growing sport in America, pickleball is sweeping the nation and baby boomers are loving it. Despite its unusual name, the sport has nothing to do with pickles. Pickleball is actually a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. The game is played as singles or doubles with a wiffle ball on a badminton-sized court and a tennis-style net.
Not only is pickleball a great way to exercise, but it is also a great way to make friends, as it is a social sport. Players of all ages and athletic abilities enjoy the sport due to the ease of play and straightforward rules. If you once enjoyed racquet sports, but now have limited physical capabilities, pickleball may be for you. Here’s a brief overview of our newest pickleball communities:
