The newest game in town! Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines the elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffle ball. Pickleball is very similar to tennis with a few key differences that make the game more accessible to a wider range of participants, particularly seniors and students. The size of the pickleball court is less than one-third of a tennis court and the ball movers one-third the average speed of a tennis ball. The smaller court combined with the slower moving ball makes pickleball a much easier game to learn and play than tennis.
Six pickleball courts were added at the O'Leary Park complex. Give pickleball a try, it may become you favorite new form of summer exercise and fun.
