Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. Combining elements of tennis, badminton and Ping-Pong, Pickleball is easy to learn with simple rules but can develop into a fast-paced competitive game for advanced players. The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 100,000 active Pickleball players making the sport one of the fastest growing in America. For more information, visit
