Choose Safety, Comfort and Durability for Your Pickleball Surface

20210622-200805

Pickleball is the newest court craze! A fun game. Fast. Yet easy to learn and improve quickly. Pickleball is also perhaps the ultimate court game that can be played by all ages.

Because the court is smaller than a tennis court and the balls and racquets are lighter, pickleball can be enjoyed by young kids as well as their grandparents. The smaller court size also makes a pickleball court a great combination with an abbreviated basketball court for backyard play.

Pickleball is traditionally played on a hard surface like a tennis court. But, that surface can be slippery and when a player falls, injuries are almost certain. If a backyard pickleball court is being used by both young and old, the new Sport Game PB by Sport Court is a better choice for several reasons. It provides better traction to prevent falls. Even when wet, water drains away from the surface to prevent slipperiness. Sport Court’s patented “lateral forgiveness” reduces joint and muscle strain when stretching to return balls. Additionally, the surface is designed to reduce court heat and is guaranteed for 15 years.

Pickleball is a great multi-generational game. It is fun for beginners and many adults have become addicted to the fast pace and competitive aspects of the game. You can watch professional pickleball tournaments on YouTube.

To see pickleball played live in San Antonio visit the San Antonio Sports and Social Club and Chicken N Pickle. No matter the time of day, you are likely to see pickleball play there. More information about the San Antonio pickleball community can be found at the San Antonio Pickleball page on Facebook.
