Pickleball is often compared to badminton, ping pong and tennis, with its own set of rules. Here are some features of Pickleball: 

  • Played indoors or outdoors
  • Badminton-sized court, with net lowered to 34 inches
  • Played with perforated plastic ball (like whiffle ball)
  • Wood or composite paddle twice the size of a ping pong paddle
  • Easy to learn, but can become fast-paced, competitive game
