Don Wall with The Texas Daily program on KTXD visited Robson Ranch Texas to learn more about pickleball.

What is Pickleball? Pickleball is a cross between badminton, tennis, and ping pong and is played on a badminton-sized court, with a ball similar to a whiffle ball and racquets similar to oversized ping pong paddles. Given the smaller size of the court, this game is approachable for most any age group and is less harsh on the knees and ankles than other racquet sports. Pickleball is also a great way to exercise and socialize.

Pickleball has quickly become a favorite and one of the most popular sports among active adults around the nation. In fact, Robson Ranch Texas, a Robson Resort Community, recently added 4 new outdoor pickleball courts to the sports and aquatics center with indoor play still available in the gymnasium. The Pickleball Club at Robson Ranch has scheduled games and invites players of every skill level to join in on the fun.
