What is Pickleball and Why is it Growing?
Pickleball at its core is a fun and exciting indoor/outdoor sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. The game is played on a court the size of a badminton court, with a low net (like tennis) and with what looks like an oversized ping pong paddle and a whiffle ball. Pickleball affords athletes less physical impact on the body, enabling them to extend their lifetime of enjoyment on the court.
The sport of Pickleball now stands firmly alongside tennis as a recreational activity at sports/fitness clubs and at a collection of leading resorts throughout North America.
Pickleball is a natural transition for tennis players looking to enjoy an alternative paddle/racquet sport that provides many of the same in-game characteristics. Also, as pickleball requires less space that traditional tennis courts, many school districts in the U.S. are introducing it as part of their physical education curriculum.
Chair Volleyball is a physical activity that provides a fun way to be active. Because players are required to remain seated, chair volleyball allows those with physical limitations to participate on a level playing field with those who may be more active. Regular participation in this activity can increase flexibility and stamina.
Chair Volleyball Rules:
- Teams consist of 9 (or less) players.
- Court is set up to regulation size: 14’ wide by 22’ deep. 11’ on each side of the net. Net height 60.”
- A 20” beach ball is to be used for play

“...Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
