Pickleball is currently the fastest growing sport in the United States. Due to its similarities to tennis, it is played by many tennis stars, including Andre Agassi. The American just played in the pickleball championship and won the entire event. What is pickleball?
Pickleball is a sport that resembles a mix of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Due to its similarities to tennis, it is played by many former tennis players. However, this sport differs from tennis in the following ways: the game is played on a court the size of a badminton court, the tennis net used is slightly modified, the player uses a racket of a different shape than the tennis racket and a plastic ball with holes. Despite a few technical differences, tennis players are great at pickleball, as Andre Agassi proved.
Andre Agassi took part in this year’s pickleball championship. He was joined in the event by such tennis legends as John McEnroe, Andy Roddick and Michael Chang. Former tennis players took part in both singles and doubles competitions. In doubles, McEnroe duoed with Chang and Agassi duoed with Roddick. The pairs faced each other in the final match of the event. Agassi’s wife was also present in the stands. Legendary tennis player Steffi Graf even faced her husband in a short duel, temporarily replacing McEnroe.
Andre Agassi dominated the Pickleball Slam competition. The American won the event and announced that he fell in love with pickleball and would play it as long as he could walk on his own. – I never thought I’d say this, but I’ll play it as long as I can walk. I can’t wait to get back on this court,” Agassi said excitedly after winning the tournament and winning $1 million.
