"Have you played it? Have you seen it? Have you heard about it? Pickleball is a combination of tennis and table tennis. You play on a smaller version of a tennis court with a paddle that’s like an oversized ping-pong paddle and a ball that’s like a whiffle ball. From what I understand whoever came up with the game—that was the name of their dog: Pickle. So, they just called it Pickleball."
