You can play pickleball at Hudson Yards starting next month
Clearly the fastest-growing sport among Americans in the past year or so, pickleball has officially invaded New York via Hudson Yards, where CityPickle, a month-long installation complete with free court rentals and lessons, will launch on October 1.
In case you are, well, living under a rock and haven't heard of the sport yet: pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Either two or four people can play at once, each player aiming to hit a perforated hollow polymer ball over a 36-inch-high net using solid paddles.
