According to Lynda Dickens, volunteer group leader, Pickleball was designed specifically for active adults in 1965, and is a cross between tennis, badminton and ping pong. Lynda thinks the sport mostly resembles tennis as the layout is similar to a tennis court but on a smaller scale. Pickleball is played with partners, but your partner can change from game to game.
Pickleball appears to be an economical sport as well as, “Most people wear T-shirts and shorts with the priciest item being a good pair of tennis shoes,” says Lynda. I have even witnessed people playing in casual work attire, with sneakers. To play, you use a whiffle ball and a paddle, specifically made for Pickleball, as your racquet. If you don't have a paddle, TSC has some you can borrow, and it is only $2 to play!
