Pickleball: not (just) your grandma’s sport

View descriptionShare

Pickleball has exploded in popularity over the last few years, but it’s actually been around since the 1960s. You might think of it as an old people’s game, but most of the players in Philadelphia now are actually in their 20s and 30s. What’s drawing this new crowd to play a sport with such a silly name? (And where did that name come from?) Sabrina Boyd-Surka talks with pickleball players and organizers, and takes the court herself to find out what all the racket is about. Turns out, pickleball could actually do a lot of good for our city.

Join the Philadelphia Pickleball Facebook group to find out when and where you can play in the city.
