According to a report by the association of pickleball professionals released to CNBC, from August 2021 to August 2022 over 36.5 million people played pickleball.

So what exactly is Pickleball??
Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis and is played on a smaller court with a perforated plastic ball and paddles. Pickleball was first created in 1965 by three fathers in Washington, looking to give their children something fun and entertaining to do! Thus a hodgepodge of sports combined into one created what we know today as Pickleball! 

Pickleball is growing in popularity for several reasons:

  1. Easy to learn: Pickleball is easy to learn and can be played by people of all ages and skill levels.
  2. Accessibility: It can be played indoors or outdoors, making it accessible year-round and in various weather conditions.
  3. Social aspect: Pickleball is a social game that can be played with friends or in groups, providing an opportunity for exercise and social interaction.
  4. Health benefits: Pickleball is a low-impact sport that provides cardiovascular and muscular benefits, making it an appealing option for older adults.
  5. Growing community: As more people discover the sport, local pickleball communities are forming, creating opportunities for organized play and increasing visibility for the sport.

“When you look at the number of people that are now picking up a paddle and playing for the first time, it is inevitable that the investment market is going to look at that and say, this is something worth us investing in,” said Tom Webb, chief marketing officer of the Association of Pickleball Professionals, the group that represents professional, recreational and amateur players.

Across the US, several tennis courts are being replaced and pickleball courts are slowly taking over. Just one tennis court can house four pickleball courts. This pickleball craze has even helped expand many small businesses, moving them into bigger chain stores! This sport is rapidly becoming a hit for many factors such as- the ease of play, and a low entry cost! Pickleball can be learned just within a few lessons!
