You may have heard Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. Pickleball combines elements of tennis, ping-pong and badminton. The rules of the game are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn. As players become more experienced it can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game.
There are many excellent health benefits to playing Pickleball. You will use balance, agility, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination. It’s a game you can easily play without putting excessive strains on your body.
Pickleball is a wonderful alternative for older players who used to play tennis, but have physical limitations such as hip, shoulder, knee, or other joint problems. Pickleball isn’t as physically as demanding as tennis meaning play is generally less intense and there are definitely less injuries.
But it’s not just older folks playing Pickleball- Kids of all ages are taking to the courts. With pros on the tour as young as 13 years old they have mentors to look up to.
But this isn’t even the best part of Pickleball. The best part of Pickleball is how social it is. The Pickleball community seems to attract the nicest people. Pickleball is a game where you can show up without anyone to play with and have everyone welcoming you to a game. You can pack your paddle with you anywhere you travel and easily find a place to play and meet new people.
