Pickleball: what is it? How to play it on a ModularSport multi-sports court?
Pickleball is an ideal sport to have fun with your family and friends. It can be played on a sports court specifically installed for it or on a multisports court like the ones we sell in ModularSport.
However, despite being a lot of fun, pickleball is not as well known as basketball or tennis. So this time we want to talk to you about this game.
Origins of Pickleball
Pickleball is a combination of different racket sports.
- the court is similar to that of badminton, another racket sport that is played with a feathered cone that does not bounce
- a tennis mesh that hangs to a low height
- rackets are made of wood, like those used to play ping pong.
The ball is made of a rigid plastic and has holes. It is the only element whose origin is not a racket sport –it comes from wiffle ball.
Conceived in 1965, the sport has gained a lot of popularity in the United States and abroad. Originally it was created as a children’s sport, but today it is played by children and adults.
How to play Pickleball on your ModularSport multisports court?
To enjoy this fun game, you don’t need to install a special court for it in your backyard or institution. Rather, you can install a multisports court –just like the ones we sell at ModularSport– to play pickleball whenever you want.
Multisports courts are designed to allow people to play different sports in one place. They come with painted markings to delimit the space for the practice of each game. Among the sports to include on a multisports court, you can choose between pickleball, volleyball, tennis, basketball or shuffleboard.
Of course, you also should consider the necessary accessories for playing the games you have chosen: tennis, volleyball and pickleball will require the installation of some posts and a mesh. Luckily, at ModularSport we can take care of it, if you wish.
