What is pickleball?
Pickleball is America’s fastest-growing sport. Currently, 85 new pickleball facilities are opening each week in the US. Pickleball invented over 50 years ago, recently exploded in popularity as America's aging and retiring baby-boomer cohort needed an active competitive sport that had lower physical demands compared to tennis, squash, and racquetball. Pickleball is played on a smaller version of a tennis court, requiring less running, overall strength, and less strain on aging joints. Over 75% of the current players are baby-boomers and retirees; however, the sport is growing rapidly among younger segments of the population. The sport is most often played as doubles, with four players on the court at a time.
