Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis and is played on a badminton-sized court where the net has been lowered. Two or four players use solid paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball, over the net. The smaller court reduces the amount of movement required which is why it appeals to older people. When people become more experienced at playing it can also be a challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game. It is also very good fun!
