If you have not yet heard of pickleball, it is about time that you do! This paddleball game has interested people for over 20 years, and it is played similar to tennis and badminton. What makes pickleball different from badminton or tennis is that instead of using a racket, you use a wooden paddle to hit the ball back and forth.
