Pickleball is a game played with a paddle and a wiffle ball (FYI, I'm TERRIBLE at it, lol). Two or four people can play at a time. It's a bit of a ping pong/tennis/badminton hybrid with its own set of rules. The paddle resembles a ping pong paddle but bigger and smaller than a tennis racket. Only a server can score a point, according to wikipedia.org.

While invented all the way back in 1965, pickleball has become one of the fastest growing sports in history, particularly for its ease of play. It's estimated that as of 2023, 4.8 million people in the U.S. had joined the pickleball craze.

That's good news for seasoned players in Gloucester Township and residents hoping to get in on the pickleball action.

A new indoor facility will open soon, joining those elsewhere in South Jersey, such as Egg Harbor Township and Monroe Township.
