By Edhat Subscriber

Dear Ed,

I have just taken up Pickle ball and wondering where to meet other Pickle players and if there are any public courts?

And what is pickle ball? Because I might take it up too if I know what it is. And if there are local courts, of course...

you go to the Pickle Room, have a few and then go outside and try to kick a ball around, priceless!

From Wikipedia:

Pickleball is a racket sport in which two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a polymer perforated ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a Badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications. One of the fastest growing sports in North America, Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a game fun for players of all skill levels.

Sounds like Paddle Tennis which I played in L.A. many years ago. Solid paddles and a tennis ball with a hole poked in it. Court is smaller than a normal tennis court. It's a great game and quite fast. I wish there were paddle tennis courts here!
