Wait…wait a minute: What is the %&@*! is pickleball? Glad you asked!
According to the folks at PlayPickleball.com, it’s the fastest growing sport in America. Invented in 1965, it is an ingenious combination of tennis, ping-pong and badminton. It is played on a court similar to a tennis court, but smaller, and with a lower number.
Because of that small court, and using a light wiffle-type ball, the pickleball doesn’t require all the exhausting — and knee-torturing — running around tennis. Instead, most of the play takes place close to the net, resulting in a game that strikes a perfect balance between hearty agility and ingenuity. And you don’t really need access to a formal court – once you have a set of paddles and a ball, you can easily make a game in your backyard, driveway or friendly neighborhood yard.
What’s with the name, you ask? Apparently there is some debate. It is telling that it is named after the dog of one of the founders, who would regularly take off with the ball during a lull in the action – hence, “Pickles’ Ball.” The other claim comes from the world of rowing, which is a “pickle boat” in which there is a substitute team or remaining players. So, the reasoning goes, pickle The mixing and matching of the sport refers to elements of several other sports. Like putting together a meal from…leftovers…which often involve pickles? Frankly, we prefer the first story.
Anyway: the important thing is that you start playing pickleball and treat yourself to this steal of a deal on a starter set. For just $60 you can get one to spruce up your home. Oh, and Amazin’ Aces offers a one-year warranty on this set. Any paddle problems, just drop them off and they’ll replace or repair them, no questions asked.
That’s unlikely to happen, however, based on what some five-star reviewers have been reporting. “We are new to pickleball, and we play on a cement court in the park,” said one of them. “These paddles take a beating from being thrown, scraped on the court/net, and the occasional throw against the fence when I make a bad shot…but these are well made.”
Another said: “Not knowing much about pickles, these paddles exceed my expectations. Played two or three times a week very well. They are better than wooden paddles and have a perfect weight.”
