Pickleball is incredibly popular now, but do you know what it is?
Pickleball is a sport invented back in 1965 in Washington State by three dads whose kids were bored with the normal summer time activities (many of us can relate!). It combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong and can be played indoors or outdoors. It’s versatility has made it extremely popular – so much that pickleball courts are springing up in vacant stores in malls!
Are you ready to get started? We can help with our pickleball kit!
Our pickleball kit has everything you need to get started, but beware – once you start, you will be hooked!
The kit can be reserved, as with all our other Library of Things items, for use. To find more information about our Library of Things collection, click here.
