What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a sport that combines many aspects of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Pickleball can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. This game is played with simple equipment including a paddle and plastic ball with holes. Take on your competition playing doubles or singles. This fun sport can be played by all ages and skill levels.

The pickleball court layout measures 20 feet by 44 feet, which is the same size as a doubles badminton court. The same court is utilized for singles and doubles play in pickleball. The net height is barely shy of a tennis net at 34 inches in the middle and 36 inches at the sidelines. With right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (known as the "kitchen"), the court is striped like a tennis court. Pickleball courts can be built particularly for the sport, or they can be repurposed from tennis or badminton courts.
