What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a court game, can be played either outdoors or indoors, and it can be played by most ages and abilities.  Play is with two (singles) or four (doubles) players. 

The court is same size as a doubles badminton court, 6.09 meters wide and 13.41 meters long.

The paddles are made of wood or composite material, and the ball is similar to a plastic wiffle ball.

The tennis type net is hung 91.5cm on the ends and 86.4cm at the center. The boundary lines are striped like a tennis court without the alleys.
