Pickleball? Is that a game played with pickles or some ball that looks like a pickle? Actually, neither.

Pickleball -- "a fun sport with a funny name," as local aficionados call it -- is a combination of tennis, table tennis and badminton.

It also happens to be the fastest-growing adult sport, and yet, according to Larry McGee of the Loveland Pickleball Club, if you walk into a sporting goods store and ask for a pickleball paddle, they will have no idea what you seek. For avid pickleball players, the only way to buy a pickleball paddle is to go online.

St. Albert Pickleball

It is Friday night at Servus Credit Union Place – almost 9 p.m. in fact, and the gym courts are busy.

On the first two courts young men are battling one another in half-court games of basketball, the repetitive tattoo of a dribbling basketball echoing off the surrounding walls.

But beneath the drumming of the basketball, there is another sound, a lighter, more convincing "thwack." Behind the drop-cloth that separates the court into threes, 10 people are holding court. Standing in twos on either side of tennis nets strung across a badminton-court-sized playing surface, they are trading blows in what looks like the most energetic game of ping pong ever played. Their racquets look like over-sized table-tennis paddles and the ball they strike looks like the family dog has gotten hold of it.

The game looks like tennis. It looks like ping pong. It bears a slight resemblance to badminton. It is called pickleball and if the group at Servus Place is any indication, it is about to become St. Albert’s next big sport.

On April 22, city council voted to spend $8,300 to create two pickleball courts in Lacombe Park, near the tennis courts off Larose Drive. It is a modest beginning for a sport that is growing rapidly from south to north as St. Albert snowbirds bring their experiences home in the summertime.

Sisters Oregon Pickleball

Pickleball, one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S., has now become an adult program through Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD).

The game is played on a hard surface divided into zones by a net, and uses a plastic ball with holes in it. Players use oversize ping-pong paddles. It is a sport that borrows elements from badminton, table tennis, and tennis.

Al Boyette had played tennis for 35 years before getting interested in pickleball.

"The game is played on a badminton-sized court, which is easier on the knees," says Boyette. "Not only is pickleball fun for the players, it's easy to learn. This is my third year playing it."

Boyette became so sold on the sport that he became the self-appointed pickleball ambassador for Sisters.

Outdoor Pickleball is back!

For the first time this year, the Saugeen Shores Pickleball Club took to the four, freshly painted courts at Lakeshore Recreation in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada last Thursday. Eighteen people gathered to have a grand ol' time, testing out the new Pickleball nets, breaking a sweat, all the while smiling, laughing and having fun.

This year, "it's bigger and better," said Maryann Dahmer, organizer of the outdoor Saugeen Shores Pickleball Club. She added, the program received funding from Community Foundations Grey Bruce and True Sport Matching Grant Pilot Program to purchase equipment, such as the new nets, run clinics, have a tournament as well as a celebration.

Venom Pickleball Paddles
Written by     May 03, 2013     3623   0   1   0   0

Pickle-Ball Inc. announced an addition to their Pickleball Paddle family, the Venom Paddle. This new Venom paddle is produced with the latest innovation in core technology, PFG2 Core. This proprietary core was developed to generate solid power and control characteristics while decreasing the noise levels typically associated with high performance tournament paddles.

The long handle and smooth radius blends of the Venom Pickleball paddle come from one of their most popular wood paddles designed and produced since the late 1960’s. This shape provides players with more of a traditional ‘head heavy’ racquet feel for increased control and the head design puts more mass behind the ball at impact than a typical Pickle-ball® paddle which increases power. The combination of the new PFG2 core and the traditional long handle racquet shape make the VENOM paddle the quietest performance paddle in the Pickle-Ball Inc. line-up.
