If you've never played pickleball, I must warn you- it's an addictive sport! Not only that, but pickleball also happens to be amongst the fastest growing sports because everyone can play it!
Pickleball is a low-impact sport similar in play to tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Sounds like fun, right? To start a game, you'll need two or four players, pickleball paddles, and a plastic pickleball (similar to a Wiffle Ball). The ball is hit over the net by the players to try and score. Because pickleball is a low-impact sport, players can enjoy the benefits of the game without the stress of excessive strains on the hips, shoulders, knees & joints.
There are many public parks in Las Vegas that have pickleball courts & some include:
Bill Briare Family Park 650 N Tenaya Way Las Vegas, NV 89128
Whitney Ranch Recreational Center 1575 Galleria Dr Henderson, NV 89014
Oak Leaf Park 6303 Mesa Park Dr Las Vegas, NV 89135
There is also an option to experience & play pickleball indoors away from the elements at the Downtown Recreation Center:
Downtown Recreation Center 105 W Basic Rd Henderson, NV 89015
There are three indoor pickleball courts located in the Downtown Recreation Center. There's a nominal fee to access the facilities; however, this is waived for veterans and seniors 60+ years of age.
Whether you're a novice or an expert, pickleball is a sport that is fun for all ages and levels of athleticism to enjoy!
