One of the country’s fastest-growing sports, pickleball is a fun social activity that’s played much like ping-pong. It also combines elements of tennis and badminton and is played on a dedicated court. All athletic abilities can pick up a racquet, and as you try to outscore your opponent, you’ll also improve your balance, agility, and reflexes. The best places for year-round pickleball fun near our Kingstowne apartments include:
