LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Pickleball is back! Wait, what is pickleball?
Gov. Sisolak announced last week some outdoor activities could return after more than a month of being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the list of activities that could resume starting May 1 were golf, tennis and pickleball.
Leaving some scratching their heads wondering what this game was, while others were excited to get back out on the court and play with friends.
The rules from the USA Pickleball Association are quite simple and similar to tennis for those familiar with that game.
The game is played on a court with a net, ball and rackets with the goal of being the first person or team of two players to 11 points, winning by at least 2 points. Click here for the full rules.
After Sisolak and other state's governors announced pickleball courts would be reopening, Twitter lit up with many tweets asking for answers.
