PLAYING PICKLEBALL IN PARADISE
ALL PICKLEBALL DOUBLES PLAY IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED
WHAT IS PICKLEBALL?
Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis using a paddle and plastic ball with holes. It is a game that is appropriate for players of all ages and skill levels. Rules for pickleball are simple, making it a great introductory sport. It can also be quite the challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.
Pickleball is Ideal for All Skill Levels
It can be easy for practically anyone to learn how to play the game. Whether you’re a beginner who just wants to learn a new sport for fun, or you’re a seasoned player who craves the thrill of more competitive play, pickleball offers something for everyone.
Pickleball is a Social Activity
Because a pickleball court is smaller than a tennis court (you can actually convert one tennis court into four pickleball courts). So, if you’re looking to bond with your family or have an outing with friends new or old, pickleball makes it easy to do just that while also giving you the ability to fit in a fun workout.
Playing Pickleball is Healthy
Pickleball allows you to work on your balance, agility, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination without putting excessive strains on your body. Pickleball is a wonderful alternative for older players who used to play tennis, but have physical limitations such as hip, shoulder, knee, or other joint problems.
