Have you ever wanted to learn how to play pickleball? Palm Beach County has lots of Pickleball courts to practice on. Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court (20’ x 44’).  The ball is served diagonally, starting with the right-hand service-square, and points can only be scored by the side that serves.
