Pickleball Finds It's Way To Macomb Township

A very popular new sport, with an unlikely name, finds it's way to Macomb Township! Pickleball is a sport described as a combination of ping-pong, tennis, and badminton. Smaller than a tennis game, larger than a table tennis game - Pickleball is played on a badminton size court. Played with a paddle and a wiffle ball, this game is a lot of fun whether you are a beginner or a more advanced player.
