Pickleball was devised in the USA back in 1965 and is now the fastest growing sport in North America. It is an ideal game for Youngsters to learn eye hand co-ordination prior to taking up tennis to become the next Andy Murray or Laura Robson. It’s great for all ages, especially those wishing to keep active in later life.
Pickleball is a racket sport that combines elements of tennis, platform tennis, badminton and table tennis. It is easy to learn, fast-paced and extremely fun to play due to the long rallies that occur throughout a game.
Pickleball is almost always played in doubles, although singles is also very popular and fun to play, especially for those looking for a greater challenge.
