More about Pickleball:

Similar to tennis, the game requires players to move back and forth within a square and hit a ball over a net with a paddle. The main difference is that you must serve under-arm, which is much easier than a tennis serve.

You’re moving your whole body when you play, making it a fun way to fit exercise into the day!
