What is Pickleball?
The name “Pickleball” came from the inventors of the game as their dog’s name was Pickles. As we mentioned earlier, this game is a combination of tennis, table tennis, and badminton. The court that you play on is about a ⅓ of a tennis court, and although this game could be considered easier than tennis, you still get quite the workout. This game is perfect for all ages as it tends to be easier on the body.
There are five easy rules to pickleball:
- The ball must stay inbounds
- There should be one bounce per side
- Serving must be done at the baseline
- The serve can't land in the no-volley zone
- The game ends at 11, 15, or 21 points
Pickleball is known to be one of those sports that you can pick up on very quickly and start having fun right away. This is why this sport brings in such a diverse crowd.
The Pickleball Ball
The ball that you use is similar to a wiffle ball as it has holes in it, but it is more durable and has a little more weight to it.
Regarding the type of ball you use, there are no rules for the color or size. There are a few different types that are used for outdoor and indoor courts respectively. Ball choice is a matter of preference. We do have numerous pickleballs in our facilities but feel free to bring your own. It is common for people to have a preference on what ball you choose, so be warned!
The paddle you use is similar to a ping pong paddle in that it is solid and easily maneuverable with a turn of the wrist, but is significantly larger. When the game was invented, wooden paddles were used and are still used at many institutions due to their lower cost. The best quality paddles are made of lightweight fiberglass due to their lower weight and higher durability, although those are more expensive.
