DELTA TWP., Mich (WLNS) – This is your lucky day if you woke up this morning ready for a pickleball match.
New pickleball courts will be opened to the public today in Delta Mills Park in Delta Township.
There will be a celebration dedication at 10 a.m. and then the courts will be open for play.
So what exactly is pickleball?
It’s a sport played on a badminton-sized court with a net that is a couple of inches lower than a tennis net.
Players use a perforated plastic ball that is very similar to a whiffle ball and pickleball paddles to bat the ball over the net.
A pickleball paddle is made of wood or composite and are twice the size of Ping-Pong paddles.
It’s a game that can be played year-round and by all ages.
