According to the USAPA (USA Pickleball Association – yes there really is one), 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.  It is a fun sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.  It is played on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net.  A tennis court can be used to create 1-4 pickle ball courts.   A player uses a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.  It can be played as doubles or singles.

    1. The best answer I can find is, the people who invented the sport got a Cocker Spaniel named Pickles a couple years later, and the rest is history. Or something like that.

  2. We could overlay the pickleball court lines onto the tennis court, and for pickle ball games, simply lower the net to 36″ on the sides and 34″ in the middle. This would allow the tennis court to continue to exist.
