What is Pickleball? Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all skill levels and ages. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
It’s a fun sport that combines many elements from tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Pickleball is mostly played as doubles although singles is becoming more popular. And, the game is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. (Equipment can be checked out at The Sports Club with your Highland Creek ID.)
Players can wear just about anything that is comfortable and allows you to move freely around the court. Comfortable court shoes are a MUST for your safety. Court shoes are shoes for tennis, basketball, volleyball and/or racquetball. Sneakers, running shoes or other street shoes do not provide the right kind of support necessary for the quick side-to-side movement and can result in injuries. Eye protection is also recommended.
