Students play pickleball in a gymnasium

A blend of tennis, badminton and table tennis, pickleball is the best sport you've never played. Pickleball matches are contested by teams of two players using a paddle and a lightweight plastic ball (similar to a wiffle ball) on a badminton court. Players of all skill levels are welcome. 

Equipment is provided by the Center for Healthy Living, although participants are welcome to use their own equipment. The season consists of round-robin play. A team's or individual’s win loss record during the regular season will determine the winner and will be awarded intramural champion t-shirts.
