Pickleball is a fun sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. It is played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, over a net.
It is slightly less physically demanding than other games and centred around having fun. It can be played by any age group and is a very sociable, friendly activity.
The rules are simple, and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
It is proposed that the Pickleball Interest Group will meet weekly on a Monday afternoon at the Hayling Community Centre between 4 and 6pm.
