Pickleball is America’s fastest growing sport and it’s easy to see why. The cross between other racquet and paddle sports such as tennis, ping pong and badminton make it a fun and unique game where two, or four, players hit a perforated hollow ball over a net using solid-faced paddles.

Opponents on either side of the net hit the ball back and forth over the net until one side errors. Games are usually played until one team reaches 11 points.

Invented in the 1960s in Washington, U.S.A., the founders are said to have named the game after a family dog named Pickles, and never guessed one day nearly 5 million people would be participating in the sport.

Our Cleveland community is also rallying behind the event and know it’ll be a smash hit with our masters athletes during Summer 2024.
