What is all this Pickleball Racket about?
Sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court.
Net is similar to a tennis net but a little lower, and points can only be scored by the side that serves.
Game is played with a hard paddle and a smaller version of a wiffleball.
Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed,
There is a 7-foot “no-volley zone” on each side of the net to prevent “spiking.”
The server continues to serve, alternating courts, until he or she faults.
The first side scoring 11 points and leading by at least 2 points wins.
Pickle-ball can be played with singles or doubles.
Public welcome to attend clinic at no cost. Starting mid-late April, the Public can play, $5 per couple.
