Pickleball
Pickleball is a racquet sport that is great for all ages, including seniors and children. It combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffle ball. Players must provide their own equipment.
