What is Pickleball?
Pickleball looks a heck of a lot like tennis, only it's on a smaller scale - less intense than tennis:
"Pickleball and tennis are different in terms of court size, rules of the game, and equipment. Tennis courts are longer and wider than pickleball courts. Tennis players use heavy racquets and rubber-covered tennis balls, while pickleball players use light paddles and low-bouncing plastic balls." - Paddletek
