About Pickleball

Dive into Pickleball at The Mill Works! Whether you prefer the social aspects of the game, the opportunity to stay active, or the fast-paced thrill of competition, pickleball has something for everyone! This is a fun sport for all ages and skill levels that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. The rules are simple and easy to learn. Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, a paddle, and a plastic ball with holes, and can be played either as doubles or singles.
