Pickleball Explained:

For the uninitiated, Pickleball is a paddle sport similar to badminton, played on a badminton-sized court with a solid paddle and a perforated plastic ball. Players volley the ball back and forth, aiming to score points by grounding it within the opponent's court.
The US Open Pickleball Championships, attracting over 3,000 players from 29 countries (aged 8 to 88!), is considered the pinnacle of competitive pickleball worldwide. This impressive Indian showing is a strong indicator of the nation's potential in this exciting sport.
