Pickleball Facts:

● 8.9 million Americans played pickleball in 2022, according to the Sports and Fitness Association of America, and it’s been the fastest-growing sport in the country for three years in a row. Participation increased by 85.7 percent in 2022 and 158.6 percent over the last three years.

● Pickleball was created in 1965 by three men in Bainbridge Island, Washington, who invented the game for their kids. They combined the rules of tennis, badminton and table tennis and started with equipment they pulled together from their garages.

● The origin of the name pickleball is of some debate, but according to USA Pickleball, the name derives from a reference to the “pickle boat” in the sport of crew, which is a race of non-starters thrown together at the event.

● Pickleball is played on a court 20 feet wide and 44 feet long, similar in size to a doubles badminton court.
