What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a fun and easy game which can be played by people of all ages. Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. The sport has been around for about 50 years, but it’s only in the past few years that it has become popular with Americans of all ages.
The game was invented by Joel Pritchard and Bill Bellamy in 1965 as a way to keep kids active during the summer. The two were inspired by tennis, badminton, and table tennis, but wanted to create a game that could be played on smaller courts and had less net tension than those other sports.
Why is pickleball so popular? Pickleball has been gaining popularity for various reasons. One of them is its simplicity and ease of play, it can be learned in about 10 minutes, which makes it easier for people to pick up than other sports like tennis or badminton. Another reason why it’s so popular is because it’s the perfect game to play with friends, family members or coworkers during breaks at work or after work hours when you want to spend time together but don’t want to go out too far from home (or your office).
