Pickle Ball

When your background is in sports, exercise, coaching, and physical education you don’t often learn something new about a sport/game. Last week I read  about PickleBall in the Fayetteville Observer in a story written by Jackly Shambaugh.

I did some additional research and learned that there is a North Carolina Chapter called North Carolina Pickle Ball.

Courts located in Beech Mountain NC

Pickleball is a paddle sport invented in 1965 in Bainbridge Island just outside of Seattle-by two area friends. It is now widely considered one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played on a court approximately 1/3 the size of a tennis court, and uses a paddle that is hard like a ping-pong paddle (but larger) and a plastic whiffle ball.

The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced competitive game for more experienced players. People of all ages can enjoy the game.

From what I can find online there is Pickle Ball in Boliva, Wake Forest, Cary, Charlotte, Mt. Airy, Brevard, Winston-Salem, Beech Mountain, NC, and of course Fayetteville NC.
