My name is Patty and I am a huge fan of Pickleball!
Pickleball is a great game that everyone can play at any age. It’s a bit like tennis, a bit like badminton and a bit like table tennis…and a whole lot of fun.
You can have two or four players and you use paddles to hit a perforated ball over a net.
The pickleball court is similar to a badminton doubles court and pickleball rules are similar to tennis.
“There is always time for one more game of pickleball”
I was introduced to Pickleball about 4 years ago when a friend suggested we try something different. We have always been active and like to try a variety of sports.
What I really like about Pickleball is it can be as competitive or energetic as you want. We usually go with competitive and the loser has to buy the sodas.
The Pickleball courts we go to have a real mix of younger and older players and lots of families seem to play together. Double matches with mom and dad with their daughter and son.
Indoor pickleball is becoming more popular, particularly where the winters are real cold. It can get a little noisy inside these centers but at least you can keep playing all year round.
I created Pickleball Patty because I wanted a place that beginners and more advanced players could go to get all the information they needed about Pickleball.
You will find all the different pickleball rules and updates. There is also a section on what pickleball equipment you will need – paddles, balls, nets, shoes, bags and ball lobbing machines. Make sure you wear comfortable clothes that let you move around the court freely.
The main aim is to just have fun.
I hope you find what you need here and remember…There is always time for one more game of pickleball!
Hope you enjoy the game!
