Pickleball in Pittsburgh

PICKLEBALL It is a fun court game for all.........

One of the fastest growing Sport in the world and in Pittsburgh also. Pickleball is a combination of ping pong, tennis, and badminton. Anyone can learn to play in 5 minutes. Pickleball is played on a court smaller than a tennis court, with a paddle (wood, composite or graphite), using a ball similar to a wiffle ball. It is a great workout for players of all ages.
