What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a paddle sport played on a scaled down size tennis court, utilizing wooden paddles and a plastic wiffleball, and is played in either singles or doubles format. The sport has been around since the early 1960’s but has really taken off in the last 10 years, and has been included in many schools PE curriculum.

Last year more than 700 people participated in Pickleball at the Oklahoma Sooner State games.
