What Is Pickleball?

It's a little bit tennis, a little bit badminton and a little bit ping-pong. Despite all that, pickleball is completely unique. It's a racquet sport, and the pickleball court is a tennis-size court with a slightly modified net and game lines. Racquets are solid, usually made out of wood or composite materials. The ball is a specialized whiffle style. The rules of the sport are relatively simple. There's a no-volley zone around the net where you can't hit the ball before it bounces. You play up to 11 points with a minimum lead of 2 for the win, and you can only score when serving. You can play singles or doubles.

The real estate market continues on through the first quarter of 2014 and into the second, and as we near the mid-way point of the year, we know that real estate has come a long way from the doldrums of the recession. Across all segments, prices are up and activity has increased across the nation.
