It may sound like a game played in the produce section of a grocery store, but pickleball is a sport enjoyed all over the nation, including from 9 a.m. to noon every weekday at the Nova Community Center, 440 N. Nova Road.
“It’s the No. 1 growing sport,” said Lori Koplin, coordinator at the center. “Two years ago, we had two courts, and now we have four. … It’s kind of a mix between tennis, badminton and table tennis. A lot of people who used to play tennis like to play it.”
Bill Lauby, of Daytona Beach, was playing pickleball recently at the center and noted that it’s played on a smaller court than tennis, which makes it easier, but it’s still a fast-paced game and “very competitive.”
