What Is the Fastest Growing Sport in the United States? | Pickler Pickleball

PICKLEBALL! Despite, or even in light of, the funny name, pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States.

For those of you new to the sport of pickleball, pickleball—commonly described as a combination of tennis, table tennis, and badminton—is a game in which players use a paddle to hit a wiffle ball over a net, with the idea of winning a rally by being the last person or team to hit the ball over the net and within the defined court. At a rudimentary level, pickleball can be thought of as mini-tennis, but with a few unique rules, such as an underhand serve and the concept of a Non-Volley Zone (affectionately called the “Kitchen”). With that said, pickleball is easy to learn, easy to have success on the court and get relatively good quickly, cheap to play, and, most importantly, FUN!
