Since its invention in 1965, pickleball has been growing in popularity across the United States and Canada. The game was invented by three dads as a way to entertain their children who had already become bored with their usual summertime activities. The fathers took elements from several other games - most prominently tennis, badminton, and ping pong - to create a new game with simple rules, perfect to play with both children and adults.
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court, and can be played in singles or doubles. Each player uses a pickleball paddle, which is smaller than a tennis racquet but larger than a ping pong paddle. The ball's design is similar to a wiffle ball, and are made of different materials depending on if it is used for indoor or outdoor play.
