About Pickleball:

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis.  Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a whiffle ball, over a net.  The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications.  Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but has become one of America’s most popular growing sports among all ages.
