Pickleball courts are about the same size as a badminton double court. The paddle is similar to a table tennis bat, only larger. The ball is a baseball sized wiffle ball.
Players have said the game is very fun and addicting! Finley Park offers drop in play Saturdays 9am-noon, extra paddles are available.
