During the summer of 1965 on Bainbridge Island, U.S. Congressman Joel Pritchard, William Bell, and Barney McCallum invented the sport.  The original purpose of the game was to provide a sport for the entire family.  

Initially, families played Pickleball in their backyards on a hard surface, on driveways, and on residential dead-end streets. Since the mid-1970's, Pickleball has grown from a family activity game to a paddle court sport with formalized rules. Now, over 20 years later, school P.E. programs, parks and recreation centers are playing pickleball.  Correctional facilities, camps, YMCAs and retirement communities are also participating in the sport.  It is becoming very popular among active senior adults at community centers.  High school and college campuses have also caught wind of the excitement.

The Pickleball Court

The pickleball court is the same size as a badminton court (20 feet wide by 44 feet long). The net is set at 36 inches high on the edges and 34 inches in the middle.

Younger players or those with varying degrees of mobility can participate due to Pickleball's smaller court. Additionally, there is a rule that prohibits volleying in the non-volley zone (the space 7 feet from the net).  This equalizes play and reduces overpowering smashes at the net. 

Students and teenagers commonly participate in the sport of pickleball during and after school.  Schools are hosting tournaments. In New York State alone, over 500 schools include Pickleball in their curricula.

The Ball

A pickleball is similar to a wiffleball, but is made with a more rigid, heavy material and has smaller holes. The common practice is to play outdoors with yellow or orange balls and indoors with white balls, but anything goes. The game is also played with high density foam balls.

The Paddle

The paddle is similar to a ping pong paddle in that it is solid and easily maneuverable with a turn of the wrist. Players used wooden paddles towards the origin of the game, and are still used at many institutions. The best quality paddles are made of lightweight fiberglass due to their lower weight and higher durability.
