Lynchburg – One of the new sports debuting this year in the Subway Commonwealth Games is pickleball, the competition being held at Lynchburg’s Boonsboro Country Club. Pickleball has attracted a whopping 150 participants in its first year in the Games. So what IS pickleball? It’s sort of a combination of tennis and table tennis, a fast-paced game played on a mini tennis court with a baseball-sized whiffle ball and an extended paddle. Two big differences from tennis, you must serve UNDERHANDED and you can’t slam in the front court, overheads only in the backcourt.
