Interested in a new sport called Pickle-ball? What’s Pickle-ball, you ask?
Pickle-ball was created with one thing in mind: fun! It was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you’re five, eighty-five or somewhere in between. Similar to tennis but with a few modifications, Pickle-ball is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special Pickle-ball paddles made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials, with two to four players. The ball used is similar to a wiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and wiffle ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing for a higher level of play for more competitive players wanting to challenge their opponents. Pickle-ball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but quickly has become popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels.
We are partnering with local players to plan a series of demo dates in the near future. If you or someone you know would be interested in learning more about this new offering, please call
