What is a pickle ball?

Pickle Ball is a sport that is the same size as the badminton court and uses a plate-shaped paddle to strike a ball with holes. Pickle balls come in both doubles and singles, but doubles are common. The size of the coat used is the same for both. The biggest feature is that a rally can be done in about 60 minutes after receiving a lecture, the perforated ball receives the resistance of the wind, and the speed of the ball weakens even if you hit it strongly, so a simple sport that seniors and adults to children can enjoy as a mix is.

It is said that it is "the most growing sport in the United States" because it is booming mainly in the senior generation in the United States due to its good strength without being too loose and not too intense as an exercise.
