Pickleball mania is alive and well in the hills of Arizona. Fountain Hills has six pickleball courts (three lighted) where a fun-loving group gets together three to four times a week (or more!) to play, exercise and improve their pickleball skills. Who says you can't get the benefit of exercise and have fun, too?
What is pickleball? Pickleball is a blend of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It can be played indoors or outdoors. The game was developed in the mid-60's in Washington State and the name is derived from Pickles, the ball-chasing cocker spaniel of one of the sport's co-inventors. Grab some popcorn and watch a short pickleball video. Get hooked like the rest of us!
The Town of Fountain Hills Parks and Recreation has partnered with local pickleball enthusiasts to host Adult Open Co-ed pickleball.
