It’s dubbed the fastest growing sport in America according to the USA Pickleball Association. The sport, created in the 1960s, combines the elements of badminton, tennis, and ping-pong. Recently, regulation pickleball lines were painted on two tennis courts at Deauville Beach. The courts are open seven days a week. Pickleball is available Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Tennis is available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. The cost of both pickleball and tennis is $10 per hour. There is a two-hour reservation limit, and courts are held for ten minutes only.
