A Game for everyone
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court using a ball similar to a whiffle ball (plastic ball with holes in it), but slightly smaller. The paddles are solid and light (about 7.5 ounces) and the net is 2″ lower than on a tennis court. The lower net, paddle size, and whiffle-style ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities but also provides advanced players a competitive game.
It is typically played as doubles with 2 players on each side of the court, although not as common, singles games can be played as well.
