Pickleball in New Jersey

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation

Pickleball is a mini-tennis game that was created in 1965 to provide a sport for the entire family.

The game is a combination of Ping-Pong, tennis and badminton, and can be played indoors or outdoor, on a court the size of a doubles badminton court with only a fifth of the area needed for tennis





Many schools are offering pickleball as part of their Phys ed programs, and parks, camps, retirement communities, and other venues with sports facilities, and organizations with fund-raiser's are adding pickle-ball and pickleball tournaments to their programs.

Since, the mid-1970's, Pickleball has grown and expanded from a family activity game to a sport with formalized rules and tournaments.
