Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but has become one of America's most popular growing sports among all ages.
The Andover Community Center offers pickleball lessons as well as beginner and open pickleball sessions.
