PICKLEBALL FEVER: Weird Name, Cool Sport
To an outsider, the game may look like tennis or racquetball, but pickleball players insist their game is different. “It`s a little more finess, a softer game,” player LeGrand Bien-Aime explains. “So they really teach you how to be patient and force your opponents to make mistakes." “I`ve had some people explain it as playing ping-pong on top of the table. The court is 1/3 the size of a tennis court,” player Steve Stone adds.
