Posted on July 31, 2020 at 03:49 PM

When asked to think of social sports, games like tennis and golf probably jump to your mind. But there’s one growing sport you’re probably forgetting: Pickleball.

Named for the inventor’s dog, Pickles, pickleball is one of the fastest-growing sports in America due to its low-impact playing style and easy accessibility. It’s also a great opportunity to make a functional fashion statement -like Stefanie Blank sporting KINONA in this feature! Source 

Have we piqued your interest yet? Here are four reasons why you should give pickleball a shot this summer.

Easy to Learn

Since the rules are so similar to ping pong, new players can easily get up to speed and start focusing on their game, instead of feeling pressured to figure out a complex set of rules.

Fun for all skill levels

Many kids get their first taste of pickleball from a school PE class and bring it home to share with the rest of the family. In fact, the inventors of the game came up with it to keep their kids from getting bored during summer vacation. 

Low Impact

Although anyone of any age can learn to play, pickleball has long been touted as a great activity for older adults. It’s lower impact than tennis, and perfect for people who have joint problems. 

Social - but socially distanced

Since pickleball courts are smaller than tennis courts, it’s easy to have a conversation while you play the game. And although many pickleball courts are located indoors, it’s simple to make your own court in your own backyard, making it an ideal activity that meets social distancing requirements.  

At KINONA, we’re big fans of any activity that gets women together, active and having fun. Next time you’re looking for a good reason to get together with friends, consider pickleball.  And of course, pair it with your favorite KINONA piece and share it with us on social! #mykinonastyle
