Pickleball is a low-impact sport that's a great workout. Dick Draigh, USAPA Amabassador, credits Pickleball for keeping his girth from expanding. "It develops hand-eye coordination, balance and increases your mobility," said Draigh, a retired Steelcase Corp. employee. I used to play a lot of racquetball, but it's too strenuous and overtaxing. This sport is easy on your body, but really fast-acting."
