What is pickleball?

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Pickleball participants play with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. It can be played as a doubles or singles game. Lakewood offers outdoor and indoor courts.
