Pickleball Comes to the JCC South HillsPickleball

Pickleball, which is part tennis and part badminton, is a simple paddle game played using a large paddle to hit a special perforated, slow-moving ball over a tennis-type net on a badminton-sized court. Easy to learn, appropriate and fun for all ages, the sport can be played for leisure or competitively.

The sport is growing in popularity. The USA Pickleball Association provides information about the game and places to play.
