Pickleball, the sport taking the world by storm!

You may have heard about Pickleball, but what exactly is it?

Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. It is played on a court similar in size to a doubles badminton court, with a net that is slightly lower than a tennis net. The game is typically played with a lightweight paddle and a perforated plastic ball, and can be played in singles or doubles format.

It’s the fastest growing sport in the world and is seriously fun for people of all ages and abilities. We love it and we know you will to!

  2. Social engagement: Pickleball is often played in a friendly and social environment, which can help players make new friends and build relationships.

  6. Suitable for all ages: Pickleball is a sport that can be played by people of all ages and skill levels, making it a great option for families and people looking to stay active throughout their lives.

James has been seen playing the sport with fellow NBA players and celebrities. James has praised pickleball for its social and competitive aspects, as well as its ability to provide a fun and challenging workout.
