At the 31st Annual DCSG a new, popular sport - Pickleball was added to the competitive games.  DPR is pleased to announce that pickleball has been permanently added as a DCSG event.  Pickleball is a racket sport in which two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a polymer perforated ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a Badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications. One of the fastest growing sports in North America, Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all skill levels.
