Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It looks like tennis, sounds like ping pong and favours the same on-your-toes action of badminton. Pickleball is a sport in its own right, and by all accounts it is the fast-growing sport in not only Cornwall but Ontario, Canada and North America!
In teams of two, players use small paddles to volley a ball, similar to a wiffleball, back and forth over the net.  It is a game that is appropriate for players of all ages and skill levels and the rules are simple, making it a great introductory sport. Pickleball can also be quite the challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.
Use of the courts is on a first come, first play basis.
