Did you know that nearly five million Americans — from Serena Williams, Drew Brees and Michael Phelps, to Larry David, Leonardo DiCaprio and The Kardashians — share a passion for what has become America’s fastest-growing sport — a cross between tennis, badminton and ping-pong?

MORE ABOUT PICKLEBALL: Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court with the net set to a height of 34 inches at the center. Equipment is inexpensive and portable, consisting of a perforated plastic ball and composite or wooden paddles about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles, indoors or outdoors and is easy for beginners to learn the basic rules in just a single session. No special apparel is needed—just something comfortable and appropriate for a court sport. Learn more about the game here
