Yesterday I played Pickleball at the Ann Arbor Y. I’d never heard of Pickleball but was promised it was “super fun”. And, indeed, it was.

Pickleball is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood paddles. about the size of a paddleball racquet. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It’s sort of a mix of doubles tennis, racquetball, and badminton.

I’d play again in a heartbeat!
