Paddle-ball is a sport that can be playedon a court half the size of a tennis court, usingpaddle racquets amongst two players (singles game) or indoubles with two teams consisting of two players. ThePaddle-ball racquet or paddle is plastic,smaller than a softball and has holes for less airfriction.
Also, can you play pickleball on a platform tennis court? A platform tennis court is 4 feet longer comparedto a pickleball court but, just as wide. Platformtennis has a net that is two feet higher and allows players tocome right up to the net. Pickleball has a shorter net anddoes NOT allow players to come right up to the net - this iscalled the no volley zone.
