Coming up alongside Tennis and Golf – Here Come’s Pickleball
A new favorite pastime among Baby Boomers, Pickleball, combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping-pong. Its strong appeal started with older adults because of the smaller court, lower net, and slower ball speed. The rules are fairly straight forward and easy to learn (see the Lakeshore Physical Therapy blog for the rule overview at:
http://lakeshore-pt.blogspot.com/ ). Over the past decade, the Pickleball craze is taking hold at all age levels and even being introduced to teenagers in physical education classes and as an intramural sport on college campuses. According to the USA Pickle Ball Association (USAPA), the sport has seen a 650% increase in numbers over the past six years. It is a great family sport that can involve multi generations. It can be played as singles or doubles, indoors or out. The wooden paddle and ball are fairly affordable. All of these factors make the sport’s future strong.
Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is planning an Intro to Pickleball class on Sundays in the fall of 2019. Please contact LPRacquet@LakeshoreSF.com for more information. As always Lakeshore Physical Therapy is conveniently located on the catwalk for you with injury questions or concerns. www.lakeshore-pt.com
