About this Exploration:
Instead of choosing between tennis, badminton or ping pong, Pickle Ball offers aspects of each rolled into one sport. Pickle Ball is played most evenings at Meadowbrook Park on N Cottonwood St. in Iola.
Pickle Ballers are trying to introduce people the differences in the paddles and how to play the game - from what the easy hits and harder hits are and to how to score.
A group of local Pickle Ball enthusiasts, some of whom have played for several years encourage anyone to come try the sport. Each night you will find seasoned players, and others that are just beginning. Anyone can play it, but a kid needs to be old enough so that he or she can understand the rules and the scoring as well as the game. If they can play badminton or tennis they could play this!
The group provides equipment for beginners looking to learn how to play as paddles can cost more than $70, which is why they supply paddles for people learning to play. Look out! It’s easy to get hooked!
