What is Pickleball?
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 can be described as a mixture of tennis, ping pong and badminton. It is played on a badminton-sized court using paddles and a hard whiffle-like ball.
It is probably the most social sport of all due to the small size of the court and the short duration of each game - about 15 minutes per game. Most people play doubles, but singles is also an option. Pickleballers are gregarious people and soon you will have many great new friends for life.
It can be played indoors or outdoors. Being one of the fastest growing sports in America, it is easy to
find locations to play and people anxious to play.
As of 12/31/2020, there are over 34,000 indoor and outdoor courts in the U.S. And the estimated number of pickleball players within the United States is 4.2 million.
GOSHEN PICKLEBALLERS GIVE BACK!

Funds were used to purchase all necessary equipment for 4 courts at each school. Goshen Pickleballers will also offer clinics to help the PE teachers learn how to play and teach the game of pickleball to their students.
