What is Pickleball?
Pickleball was created by three U.S. Congressmen in 1965 when they didn’t have the right equipment to play badminton. The family dog, Pickles, would chase after the ball and hide it in the bushes, giving the sport its original name of Pickle’s ball. The name was later shortened to Pickleball when it gained popularity with families across the U.S. in 1970. Pickleball is a favorite pastime to many today.
