WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Don’t let the name fool you. Pickleball has nothing to do with pickles.

Pickleball is actually a mix of tennis, on a badminton court, using ping pong like paddles and what resembles a Wiffle Ball.

Because the court is much shorter, and you don’t have to do a lot of running, it’s an attractive sport for older people.  Anyone, however, can play.

“It’s just fun and it’s easy to play,” said Mike McGrath, from the Cape Fear Pickleball Club. “You don’t need a lot of skill. If you have any hand eye coordination at all, you can hit a ball.”

The Cape Fear Pickleball Club wants to teach everyone to play.
