Corny Rempel and Kenton Dyck were curious about what PICKLEBALL is. So the good people at the Pat Porter Active Living Centre put them through the paces.
What is PICKLEBALL? This is what the Pat Porter Active Living Centre says about the sport.
"We have started Pickleball at the centre. Pickleball you ask? It’s oversized ping pong! Played on a badminton sized court with a tennis sized net. Just use a paddle to keep a plastic ball going back and forth over a net until somebody messes up. Simple right? Tennis, racquetball, squash and ping pong players love the competitive nature of it in competitions and tournaments all over the country. It’s a paddle sport for all ages and all athletic ability levels. It has very simple rules and is easy to learn and play.
