Starting on January 7 come to Cumberland Recreation and play pickleball. Please bring your own racquet and ball. Players do not need to have their own partner to play. All adult skill levels are welcome to play.
Enthusiasts call the low-impact pickleball game America’s fastest growing sport, rather like a slower game of tennis crossed with badminton, wiffleball and ping pong. It’s played on a much smaller, badminton-like court on which the net is lowered to 34 inches at the center. The ball is perforated plastic, and paddles are similar to oversized ping-pong paddles.Pickleball requires more finesse than power, and is reportedly easier on the body, including knees, hips and shoulders. For instance, serving is done underhand.
Why is it called pickleball when there are no pickles involved? It apparently was named after a co-inventor’s cocker spaniel (named Pickles), who loved to chase stray balls and hide them in the bushes.
