Senior Activities at GTCC

Pickleball incorporates elements of tennis, racquetball, and badminton, Valinda Dudley, pickleball player said. The paddle is short like a racquetball racket but wooden and so has less give. The ball resembles a small Wiffle ball. It doesn’t bounce like a tennis ball and has more curve potential. Keeping up with the score is harder than keeping up with the ball.
