Pickled? — as in sloppy drunk? Well, no, not really.

Phil Carville: Pickled?

The pickleball court is smaller than in tennis, so you don’t have to run like you do in tennis. Your opponents are just across the net, so you are close together and it is very social. The ball moves slower than tennis, but the game relies on balance, agility, good reflexes, and hand-eye coordination — all without excessive strains on the body.
