What is pickleball? Pickleball is a combination of badminton, ping-pong, and tennis. The players use wooden paddles to hit a ball similar to a Wiffle ball over a net. The rules are similar to tennis, and the game has become quite popular since its invention in mid-1960. So popular, in fact, that North Myrtle Beach Parks and Recreation is hosting the Paddle at the Beach Pickleball Tournament the weekend of April 15. The tournament will be held at the J. Bryan Floyd Community Center and the cost is $25 per player.
Excell Storm is presenting The Storm Tour, a Summer Grass Volleyball Tournament at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex May 14-15. Costs for pre-registered open divisions are $75 and walk-up registrations are $90. There are always games of beach volleyball happening up and down our shoreline, but this grass volleyball tournament is sure to feature some great competition!
