Pickleball, a sport created for all ages and skill levels, is one of the fastest-growing in the country. Many members love playing the paddleball sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis.



Pickleball players use special paddles and a wiffle ball, and games take place on tennis courts with specific pickleball lines. Nets and court sizes are smaller than their tennis counterparts, and the most common game is doubles, although singles is also an option. It's a sport created for all ages and skill levels and one of the fastest-growing sports in the country.

Pickleball is offered at the following YMCA of Greater Long Beach branches:
