HOUSTON (KIAH) — Today marks National Pickleball Day! The sport is played by using elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong by using a paddle and plastic ball with holes.

If you’re looking to get plugged into how to get involved, The Houston Pickleball Association may be something to look into. It’s a group that brings both new and existing players that advocate for new courts to be built in the city, existing courts to be converted both publicly and privately and to increase tournaments and programming across the greater Houston area.
