There’s a lot to love about Pickleball; it’s easy to learn, requires a smaller space, and is gentler on the body than your traditional racket sports. If you’re new to the world of Pickleball, picture a smaller version of tennis, or a larger version of ping pong with bigger paddles. Despite its compact badminton-size court, Pickleball is fast-paced, fun, and more accessible than ever as it continues to grow in popularity.
What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is typically played on a badminton-size court and a slightly modified tennis net. A sport that anyone can easily play, the basic goals include:
- Not letting the ball go out of bounds
- Understanding the rules on how to serve the ball to the opposing person or team
- The “two bounce rule” or the ball must bounce at least once on both sides
- Avoiding the “No Volley-Zone” when serving the ball
- Knowing that the score goes up to 11, 15, or 21 points.
Thanks to the lightweight wiffleball used in Pickleball, virtually any indoor or outdoor space can be used as a Pickleball court. Tennis courts, basketball courts, and even indoor gym spaces have been successfully converted. Of course, each surface type will affect the pace of the game; properties like the speed of the ball bounce and surface traction are important aspects to consider for your playing preferences.
Concrete, Asphalt, & Rubber Gym Flooring
A quality concrete or gym surface can be repurposed into a Pickleball court. Harder courts and rubber surfaces are wonderful for maximum ball bounce and competitive tournaments. Tough and long-lasting gym flooring installation comes complete with striping, professional coatings, and everything else you need to maintain flawless Pickleball performance for years to come!
