What is Pickleball?

For those new or unfamiliar to Pickleball, it can be described as a combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong all in one. This game is played on a badminton-sized court with the net located at the center with a height of 34 inches. Equipment required would be composite or wooden paddles that are about double the size of a ping-pong paddle, and a plastic ball similar to a whiffle ball. Both an indoor and outdoor game, beginners can easily learn the basics while more veteran competitors can have a fast-paced and competitive experience.

The sport is governed by the USA Pickleball Association (, which maintains the rules, promotes the sport, sanctions tournaments, and provides player rankings. For more information, please visit the USAPA website. According to USAPA over 3 million Americans are active participants and players today with a 12% increase of players each year!

Furthermore, the sport has proven to become especially popular with older community members as USAPA reports that among those ages 55 to 64, 7.7% were casual participants while 31.8% were core participants. Ages 65+ had 5.4% casual participants and 42.7% core participants. 13% of casual participants and 75% of core participants are 55+ years of age.

Most participants of the older age category are looking to get some exercise and stay active, while meeting new people for their longevity and for improved mental health. Benefits for the senior community include:

  • Impactful and low-demand exercise
  • Social engagement with others having similar goals and interests
  • Cost effective experience

Seniors that partake in playing Pickleball are attracted to the simple rules and low physical impact on their body, like knees and joints. Western State Colorado University reported in a 2018 study that seniors who play three times a week saw measurable improvement in their cardiovascular fitness and blood pressure.

Like Tennis, Pickleball can be played in singles or doubles format. Although the two sports are similar, tennis and pickleball have distinct differences. Matches are much shorter than a game of Tennis, so senior couples can schedule regular Pickleball matches as part of establishing friendships within the immediate community.

The cost required to play Pickleball is rather economical. All that is required are portable nets and a court half the size of a tennis court.

Alternative options include white water rafting on one of the many rivers, nature walks, and ziplining through the colorful and lively rainforest. Snorkeling at Mansita Beach at low tide in the morning is also a popular activity, especially to see stingrays and very large lobsters side-by-side, along with thousands of rainbow runners and dozens of other types of colorful fish.

Steps away from the Pura Vida House, guests can also enjoy a serene horseback ride into the jungle, seeing lots of monkeys and species of birds along the way, and finishing the ride on a desolate white-sand beach watching the beautiful sunset to round out a wonderful evening. The Pura Vida House experience offers tranquility at its best!

There are also swimmable waterfalls you can visit to refresh yourself in after a long pickleball session, and for those interested, Pura Vida House can provide masseuses to come and pamper everyone by the beach or under the palapa with a 1-hour massage to get everyone ready for next day’s pickleball play!

There are many opportunities to explore the local culture, attending festivals and rodeos, sampling healthy and delicious food at the local “Soda’s.”
