A lively racquet game for all abilities!
Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis and is fun and easy to pick up. Pickleball is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes and can be played indoors or outdoors on a badminton size court. It can be played as doubles or singles and can develop into a quick, fast-paced competitive game for more experienced players.
This fun game has been designed to be easy to learn and play, whether you are five, eighty-five or anywhere in between! This sport is also low impact on the joints, so is ideal for someone with minor mobility problems.
