The game of pickleball, with its peculiar name and captivating play, has been taking the world by storm. Its simplistic nature, combined with the strategic depth and inclusivity, has made it a beloved sport by many. But what exactly is pickleball, and why is it so popular? And how does RuK's Infinite Solar Pickleball Pack fit into this picture?
What and Why is it Called Pickleball?
Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, Washington. The name "pickleball" is thought to have originated from the term "pickle boat," which refers to the last boat to return with its catch in rowing races. However, others argue that it was named after the inventor's dog, Pickles, who would chase after the ball during games. The game combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis, creating a unique and enjoyable sport that's easy for beginners to pick up but still offers enough complexity for seasoned players.
How Do You Play Pickleball?
Played on a court half the size of a tennis court, with a paddle and a perforated plastic ball, the game of pickleball is as intriguing as it is fun. The rules are straightforward: games are typically played to 11 points, and you must win by 2. Points can only be scored by the serving team. The ball is served diagonally, starting from the right-hand service square and must land in the diagonal service court. After the serve, the opposing team must let the ball bounce once before hitting it, known as the "double bounce rule".
What is Pickleball and Why is it So Popular?
Pickleball has grown exponentially in popularity for a multitude of reasons. Its rules are easy to understand, making it accessible to beginners. The smaller court size makes it less physically demanding than other racquet sports, removing the barrier of physical fitness to a large extent. This has led to a perception of pickleball being an "old person sport". However, this notion is rapidly changing as more and more young people are discovering the fun and competitive nature of the game.
