WHY BUY THIS? Because, apparently, Pickleball is the sport these days, and is destined to be the fifth American sport, just like Lacrosse, which we love by the way. Pretty simple as you just find an empty tennis court, and hit a plastic whiffle ball over the net with paddles. At least you are not chasing around tennis balls that fly over the fence. Let’s be clear. Playing with this Pickleball set involves movement on a court, so we do not expect adult participation, since you actually may break a sweat. Rather, playing with this Pickleball set will keep your Kids Entertained While you Hang out in your Man Cave. But for that, and unless you have a tennis court in your backyard, you will need a Pickleball Net. It’s worth it if it can keep your kids occupied for an hour or so. You can also take a look at the simple game of Kickball or Whiffle Ball. Or, you can consider this portable badminton set. Hey, they actually have a Badminton Hall of Fame. Go figure.
