One of the tennis courts is now adapted to play pickleball. 

Pickleball is a mixture of several sports including tennis, by its movements, table tennis, for its rigid racket, and racketball, for the size of the racket. It is played in doubles and singles, inside and out, on a hard surface. As with most racket sports, the goal of the game is to send the ball into the opponent's playing area without the opponent being able to return it, in order to score as many points as possible. The net is set at 34 inches in the center and 36 inches at the outer lines, two inches lower than the tennis net. The regulations are designed to promote exchanges and are very similar to those of tennis. The ball is made of perforated plastic, similar to that used for hockey Cosom.
 
Pickleball has many advantages. It is much easier to play and especially less demanding on muscles and joints than tennis or badminton. Pickleball can be practiced by people of all ages.
