Played on a court (20 ft x 44 ft) that is smaller than a tennis court with a lower net, pickleball uses a plastic ball that that looks like a wiffle ball. With less running and a slower moving ball than tennis, pickleball is gaining in popularity particularly in 55+ communities throughout the country. The sport is catching on in Southwest Florida and communities in the Fort Myers area with pickleball include: Pelican Preserve - Three lighted dedcated pickleball courts Heron's Glen - Six tennis couts lined for pickleball Bonita Bay - Two pickleball courts Brookshire - Two pickleball courts Cinnamon Cove - Two tennis courts taped for pickleball Golfview - Two lighted tennis courts taped for pickleball For more information, the USA Pickleball Association (USAPA) maintains a database of places to play pickleball in Florida.
