What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a sport that originated in the United States back in 1965. The game uses a smaller version of a Tennis court (often taking an existing Tennis court and adding additional lines), with a slightly lower net. Players use small paddles typically made of aluminum or graphite with a plastic ball that has holes, closely resembling a whiffle ball.
