Pickleball Courts Ready for Pickling, in Richmond, Virginia

Four courts are now open for action in Forest Hill Park.

For those that don’t know, Pickleball is a weird mix of miniature tennis and giant ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. A plastic ball with holes is hit back and forth with paddles. Original paddles were wooden but now you can get a paddle in lightweight composite materials, including aluminum and graphite. A basic set of pickleball with four paddles and balls will set you back around $40 on Amazon.
