Pickleball is a paddle sport, similar to doubles tennis.  Players hit a perforated plastic ball over a three-foot high net.  The court is 44 by 20 feet, with a seven foot non-volley zone near the net, known as “the kitchen". It's easy for beginners to get started and have fun right away.  Experienced players enjoy a fast-paced, competitive game.
