I like to hit up random things, so I joined Meetup.com. I found something called Pickleball on there, so I had to go experience it for myself. I had a blast! It's a racket sport that is similar to badminton and tennis.
You play on teams of two, against another team of two, and you hit a wiffle-type ball over the net back and forth with big rackets. It was invented as a backyard kids' game, but has evolved into a whole sport with leagues all over the country. I'm genuinely surprised I had never heard of it before, but I'll definitely go back to play it again!
Notice the rackets?
This guy is having a great time!
“It was invented as a backyard kids' game...”
An indoor teen's league.
Not quite it...
Meetup.com is a great place to try new things and meet new people!
One of my nephews plays street basketball, or, as he told me it's called, "Streetball". So, whenever I visit them in Los Angeles, I always make sure to check out one or two of his games because they're such fun to watch!
