Pickleball fever takes over NYC

New York – Pickleball is taking the world by storm and New York City is no exception. Central Park’s courts are always packed with players who meet daily and play from dawn to dusk.

The sport combines tennis, table tennis and badminton on a small court and can be learned in just a few minutes. Due to the simplicity of the game, players of all ages and abilities can play together, choosing the intensity and athleticism that works best for them.

“In the beginning we basically had to beg people to play with us. There were four of us when we started, and we’ve grown from four to over 1,000 members,” said Eduardo Valentin, a Central Park Courts veteran.

The social nature and growing popularity of the sport helped create a real sense of community among participants. “It’s a place where you’re accepted, where you have a connection,” says Harriet Dorosin, a regular. “Come and play,” she prompts. “We’re moving for you!”
