Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the USA and is a very popular racket sport globally. Pickleball was invented in 1965 by 3 dads who wanted to keep their kids entertained during summer. The origins of the very unusual name of this sport is a contentious issue & there have been a couple of theories bandied about over the years., but none have been confirmed as absolutely true. One theory was that one of the founders of pickleball had a dog named Pickles who used to chase the balls around, but whether this is true is another issue 🙂
Pickleball is played by players of all ages and is described as a sport which combines elements of tennis, badminton & table tennis. Pickleball is played both indoors & outdoors on courts that are roughly a quarter the size of a tennis court with nets that are slightly lower than tennis nets. With the popularity of Pickleball increasing it’s meant that many unused tennis courts have been converted to pickleball courts and many community centres have created indoor pickleball courts to cater for this hugely popular sport.
