We find ourselves still answering this question a lot despite the sport’s enormous growth all over the world in the last 10 years!
Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports including the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis.
In Radnor Township, the sport is on the rise and the Recreation & Community Programming Department has many opportunities for you to play! Radnor Activity Center in downtown Wayne is bustling with Adult Pickleball several days per week this winter (see below for current program information) and our courts at Bo Connor Park, Warren Filipone Park, and Clem Macrone Park offer an outdoor option for you to play every day!
