What is Pickleball?

Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but has quickly turned into the sport of choice for people of all ages and athletic ability. Sport Court of Austin installed the first Pickleball Court in the Austin area back in the 70s!

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.
