Adult Pickleball

The Fastest Growing Sport in the Country

We are excited at Lakeland Hills YMCA to offer what is being described as the fastest growing sport in the country. What is pickleball? Pickleball is a racket sport which combines badminton, tennis and table tennis. The pickleball court dimensions are the same as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net but mounted two inches lower. One of the MANY advantages to Pickleball is that it is a sport for ALL ages and skill levels. Pickleball games and pickleball tournaments are becoming more and more popular across the U.S.

Physical Health

The pickleball community is an excellent example of how staying active can improve one’s physical health. From increasing strength to boosting the immune system to improving sleep — playing pickleball on a regular basis packs in a lot of physical health benefits.

Mental and Emotional Benefits

If you’ve ever felt a mood boost during or after a game of pickleball, it’s about more than just having fun. When you exercise, your brain releases endorphins, which are the feel good chemicals that elevate mood. Regular exercise has been known to ward off anxiety, fight depression and boost self esteem.

Social Wellness

Humans are a social species. Even the most reclusive and solitary people need interaction with humans at some point or another. There is growing evidence that socializing lowers the risk of dementia. Pickleball, often played with four people on the court at the same time, is an excellent conduit for broadening your social web and increasing the amount of face-to-face interaction with your fellow humans. Plus, Pickleball is a sport for all ages so the whole family can play together!
