2. All Ages Can Play

Pickleball’s huge popularity is because people of all ages can play it. It is especially popular with older players as it offers cardiovascular exercise with little risk of injury. The pickleball court is smaller than a tennis court, which means that players don’t have as wide an area to cover. The ball is also a lot lighter than a tennis ball and is served underhand, making it easier for people at all fitness levels to play. Added to this, the duration of an average game is 12 minutes, making it possible for players to take frequent breaks.
