WHAT IS

PICKLEBALL?

 

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

 

The Basics

A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.

At Hyde Park pickleball is played indoors because we are special, but other places may play outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.

 

Pickleball is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. You play as doubles
or singles, though at Hyde Park doubles is always preferred and a lot more fun.
