Are you up for a game of pickleball? Our real estate agents sure are! Pickleball is sweeping the nation, becoming the new favorite sport for men and women of all ages. This game is a combination of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Two or four players play on opposite sides of a net and use solid paddles to hit a pickleball back and forth. Despite being quite a fun and competitive game, it's becoming just as popular in schools as it is in senior centers. If you're hoping to play a few rounds of pickleball this summer, head over to these local pickleball courts.
