One of the fastest growing sports in the country is making an impact in Door County. Pickleball is being played at the Door County YMCA and the game is catching on big time. The sport combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong while using a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. Bonnie Ripp of Sturgeon Bay, who took up Pickleball seven months ago, says she loves the social aspect of the game.
Ripp adds that two or four players can play pickleball and that the games can range from being very social to very competitive. The Door County YMCA offers courts for beginners, intermediates and advanced levels, according to Ripp. You can find out more about the sport of Pickleball below.
