Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. It’s a paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The game features two or four players using solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball (similar to a Wiffle ball) over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, including the dimensions and layout of a badminton court and a net, and rules similar to tennis.
