Indoor Open Play Outdoor Courts Pickleball Clinics FAQs

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. Pickleball can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court using a slightly modified tennis net. It is played as doubles or singles with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. The sport has many physical and social benefits.
