What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a sport that originated in the 1960s and is played on a court that is smaller than a tennis court, but larger than a badminton court. Players use paddles to hit a ball over a net, similar to tennis. Pickleball is a fun and social sport that can be played both indoors and outdoors.

Why is Pickleball So Popular in the Bay Area?

The Bay Area has always been at the forefront of many cultural and social trends, and pickleball is no exception. The sport is low-impact, which makes it a popular choice for older adults with joint issues. It's also easy to learn, which appeals to beginners and families. Additionally, the growing trend of active lifestyles and the desire for outdoor recreational spaces have made pickleball a popular choice for many.

Real Estate Developers are Taking Note

Due to the growing interest in pickleball, many communities are creating new pickleball courts, and developers are incorporating pickleball courts into new residential communities. Elation Real Estate is a top real estate brokerage in the Bay Area that recognizes the growing trend of pickleball.

In summary, Pickleball has become ubiquitous in the Bay Area because of its social element, accessibility, and low-impact nature.
