As the previous post was just simply pictures, I thought I would explain for all the newbies to pickleball. This wonderful, intense game is a combination of ping pong and tennis. It is a played on a badminton size court with the net lowered to 34 inches in the center. It is played with a whiffle ball and wooden paddles. It can be either a beginners game, but we like to play quick, fast paced, competitive games for experienced players. It is a wonderful weekend activity that we have picked up with our friends over the last few weekends. I guess it makes it easier when you have the court in your backyard. Anyway, check it out, guranteed fun!
