Net Wall Activities » Pickleball
Pickleball is a game started in 1965 that is played with a small wooden paddle and a hard plastic ball that contains holes. It is a combination of table tennis, badminton and tennis games. The game allows for success by many students as they are able to hit the larger object. This mini-tennis game is played by 2 or 4 people on a badminton-sized court. Pickleball can be played on any hard surface and is ideal for small spaces. This exciting sport can be played on driveways, cul-de-sacs, tennis courts, and multi-purpose game courts like a Sport Court. The game requires the students to use agility and precision. Students will learn the grip, forehand and backhand strokes, the serve, how to score, the rules, and how to play to open spaces to create the shots.
