Article Photos: Tennis-like game picking up steam with seniors 3/4

In this Monday, Dec. 3, 2012 photo, clockwise from left; Gary Dyson, Del Teter, Donna Shattenberg and David Bone compete in a game of pickleball at Sun City West senior community in Surprise, Ariz. A hybrid of tennis, badminton and table tennis, pickleball is played on a court a quarter the size of a tennis court, with hard rackets and a variety of whiffle ball. "It's really easy to learn, it's a lot of fun and it's a very social game because you're in a small area with a lot of interaction," said Bill Booth, president of the USA Pickleball Association.
