Section: 01  

Pickleball is a paddle sport with combined elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong, and played on a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle that is similar to table tennis and usually made up of graphite or composite. The ball is comparable to a whiffle ball.

The game can be played in either singles' or doubles' matches. For new players, the basics of the sport are easy to learn. Typically, one session of three or four games is all that it takes to grasp the basics.
