Pickleball is a popular paddle sport invented in the 1960s by combining elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. The sport is played but either 2 of 4 players each using paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball over a net.

A pickleball court is the size of a full badminton court which is 20 by 44 feet where both singles and doubles play use the same exact measurements.

The court is split down the center dividing each half. Starting from the net, each side has a 7 foot inner court where volleys are strictly prohibited. This area of the court is now unofficially known as “the kitchen”.
