It’s the fastest-growing sport in the country — but do you know how to play pickleball? From young kids to older adults, beginners to pros, and fierce competitors to social players, people of all ages, abilities, and levels of competitiveness are playing pickleball. And there’s a reason for its wide spread: it’s one of the rare sports that offers play for a large population. Between the size of the court, the rules and method of play, it’s really easy for anyone to learn!
