New sport of Pickleball appeals to North Georgians
Lanier Villages Estates residents play weekly games
Residents of Lanier Village Estates use their tennis to play a new game that is catching on across the country. Pickleball combines elements of tennis, ping-pong, on a badminton-sized court. Players use special paddles and whiffle balls which takes a strong swing to send the ball over the net.
A new sport is sweeping across senior communities and public gyms in North Georgia. The game pickleball, akin to tennis and badminton, frequently attracts seniors because of its smaller courts and greater accessibility. Lanier Village Estate resident Tory Elliott plays regularly at the retirement community.
