Pickleball is played by all ages, but is favored particularly by children and seniors for a few reasons. The speed of the ball moves much slower than the speed of a tennis ball and players find it easier on the body playing on a smaller court.
With that being said, pickleball not only has the fun factor, but it has many health benefits that go along with the sport.
Playing pickleball can boost your mood and overall mental health, you burn calories, and fewer injuries occur due to the low impact nature of the game. Pickleball specifically works on your balance and agility while it also offers the same benefits of other regular exercise. These include reducing your risk of heart attack and chronic disease, toning your muscles and increasing your energy.
Most of all, pickleball is a social sport where you will create friendship anywhere you play.
