FYI: Pickleball was first invented in 1965 by three dads in the United States with bored kids.
So what is this game and, most importantly, are there pickles involved?
The game does not require brined cucumbers. But there is a whole lot of fun. Kids LOVE it!
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court with ping pong-type rectangular racquets, a wiffle-type ball, and tennis-like rules. It can be played as a singles game (with two players) or a doubles game (with four players). The rules sound complicated but they’re actually pretty easy to pick up. Once your kids play a couple of times, they’ll have the game down pat and they’ll want to play again and again.
