Learn the fastest growing racket sport in America which combines tennis, badminton and ping pong for a fun game! Pickleball is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball, which is similar to a whiffle ball, and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for the experienced player. Equipment is provided on site. Visit or to watch videos of play action.
