What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a popular paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. It’s played on a badminton-sized court with special pickleball paddles and a plastic perforated ball. The game is becoming increasingly popular among recreational players worldwide thanks to its fast and fun nature.

Can You Play Pickleball Singles?

Yes, you can play pickleball singles! In fact, it’s one of the most common ways to play the game. When playing singles in pickleball, two players take turns hitting the ball over the net from their respective sides of the court. The player who fails to return the ball within three hits loses that point — unless they hit it out or into an area designated as off-limits for whatever reason (i.e., no volleys). Some tournaments also allow for doubles games, where four people are divided into two teams of two players each on opposite sides of the net.
