"Anybody that walks in and has a pair of tennis shoes on could pick the game up and start playing. You don't have to be John McEnroe to play it. You can be Jim Wikoff," he said with a laugh.
Pickleball can be played inside or outdoors on a court with similar dimensions to a badminton doubles court. It is played with two or four players and generally lasts 10 to 15 minutes per game.
