What is Pickleball?
Pickleball originated on Bainbridge Island, Washington. The first Pickleball game was played on a summer afternoon in 1965, at the home of Joel Pritchard, a famous Washington State Politician and US Congressman. While attempting to play a game of badminton, Congressman Pritchard and his friends couldn’t find a shuttlecock. So instead, they lowered the net, built paddles out of plywood, and played with a Wiffle ball. Pickleball was born.
