Because players aren't required to be great athletes to play, Pickleball Paddles can be played by just about anyone. Since it's played on a badminton-sized court, which is approximately a quarter the size of a tennis court, more courts can be put in the same amount of space, allowing more people to play at one time. The smaller courts also means less ground to cover, making it less of a cardio sport and easier on the joints and legs. Since Florida retirement communities focus on fun activities, Pickleball Paddles is a perfect option since it can be played as singles or doubles. Also, Pickleball Paddles is served underhanded while tennis forces players to use a difficult, overhand serve. One similarity to tennis though, is the ball can be volleyed or hit after one bounce.
