Pickelball is tennis & ping pong with a wiffle ball and hard rackets. It is played on a tennis court with a smaller, portable net, with usually two players competing against another two players.
One tennis court can typically hold two games, for a total of 8 players in action.
Though the ball moves slower than a tennis ball, the tactical, 'up close' pace makes for a social, fun atmosphere that is relaxed, yet athletic.
As a Special Educator & Political Scientist who is interested in bringing forth practical, community-integrating activities for youth, adults, and senior citizens, both typical and those with gifts, talents, and special needs, --I find that playing pickle ball satisfies the novelty, fun, and executive function skill strengthening, athletic needs for people.
