What do you get when you cross the intense teamwork of tennis with the fast paced back-and-forth of ping pong? The answer, one of America's greatest hidden pastimes, Pickleball. Pickleball is a hybrid sport with rules similar to tennis and ping pong, but played on a smaller court. With rules that are easy to pickup, pickleball is a perfect sport for contenders of all ages. You can find more detailed information on the USA Pickleball Association's Website.
