PICKLEBALL FOR THE WIN
Pickleball looks a lot like tennis, but it’s played with light paddles on special courts. The ball looks like a whiffle ball. The paddle looks like the style used in table tennis. The game is becoming more and more popular as a way to be active. Here’s why. You can:
• Socialize with others. As in tennis, you can play singles or doubles. That means there’s a social element. You’re not just working out. You’re having fun with friends.
• Get a good workout. Pickleball allows for a good amount of action. You have to move around on the court and swing your paddle to hit the ball back and forth over the net.
• Avoid overexerting yourself. You don’t need to be super fit to get started with pickleball. The court is smaller than a tennis court, so you don’t have to run as much. Also, the ball is lighter, and the paddle is both smaller and lighter.
If you’re looking for a new way to get more active, give pickleball a try. If you haven’t been active in a while or have any health conditions, talk with your doctor first. Visit Healthyroads.com today.
