To me, you just want to "pair"/double with your own age group or agility-regardless of the age. I've played MANY games of tennis. I learned quick, DO NOT play with "pros" or you're going to get burned everytime. But it's fun when I played with guys on my level. I'm sure this game is no different.

It looks like a fun game being toned down a little. I LOVE the blue court! Nice touch!

No Pickleball near us, which is why several of us go bowling once a week!

We're in the NW corner of SC in the middle of Sumter National Forest. The nearest city that had Pickleball, Seneca is 30 miles away. Now the nearest is about 50 miles away. Bowling alley in Seneca is 25 miles away. We enjoy it!

Bowling is fun. There are two places to play Pickleball in Seneca. This is a link to all places to play.

Just clicked on that link you posted. Nope it was in our local paper last month that those places don't allow Pickleball anymore and the closest now is Clemson which is an hour away. We're fine bowling with our friends!

Looks like a cross between tennis and pingpong to me. How do the court dimensions compare to a tennis court?

If the ball must bounce on the serve before it can be returned, service that bounces within a foot or so of the back line must be tough to return......?

Hi Mike, a little like ping pong and a little like tennis. It's a game just about any one can play. Today a man older than me appeared with two hefty knee braces using a cane. I watched him a a credible game. He had trouble getting some shits but returned a fair number. Definitely not possible in Tennis.

The Court is 20 x 44 and that's for doubles and singles. I would guess a p-ball court is less than half the area of a doubles tennis court. By the way a tennis court can be marked with a piece of chalk to create a Pickleball court.

Tennis, particularly men's tennis, becoming the case with women's and to some extent ping pong are dominated by the serve. Not the case here.

The receiving team starts at the back line by choice not rule. Rather quickly it moves forward though good lobs are very effective. Even with average players there are good, never touch the court volleys, with all players separated by 15 feet.

It's a good game, most people can play the 11 points without exhaustion building a good little sweat and raising their heart rate. In the situation here there are about 40 players and 3 courts. Typically you play one, sometimes two games an hour, usually with different partners usually chosen at random. By the way there are as many women as men.

Tornament play is different, you enter with a partner and always play together. In the tournament I played, it was a round robin play down, my partner was a woman, a good player, and we won. The park was in AZ. I tried to convince Ginny to buy an RV lot in that park. I would play every morning until noon.

One nice aspect is Therevs always room to carry a racket in our little rigs, golf clubs are another matter.

Pickle ball scamping

I use my 16 ' scamp majority of the time travelling to pickle ball tournaments all over Florida and Georgia. Pickle ball is very competitive when you get to the 4.5-5.0 level. If you want some running try singles...much more challenging than tennis. That is the beauty of the game it can be as easy or challenging as you want...I love scamping and pickle ball..

i'll be playing in Daytona Beach Shores tournament on Oct. 6-7. Some of the best players in the state there in DBS. There is a real nice campground there too (nova family campground) with good rates ($25+) I stay there when I play at DBS. Let me know . I like looking at other scamps and getting modification ideas. I just put new floors , access door ,rear storage on bumper and mattress in my egg.
