CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Parks and Recreation Department will offer its Pickleball program for men and women ages 18 and up this fall as well as four Adult Softball Leagues.

According to organizers, "Pickleball is an easy game to learn and play at any age. This indoor sport will be held Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m.–11 a.m., beginning on September 8, 2020, at the Corpus Christi Gym, 3202 Cabaniss Parkway. Pickleball is a fun way to get active!"

Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis.  

"The game is played using paddles volleying a plastic ball with holes, like a whiffle ball but slightly smaller, on a badminton-sized court with a modified tennis net. Games can be set up for singles or doubles," added organizers.
