A great activity to enjoy at the Sundial Resort this year is their three-day Pickleball Camps. 

Pickleball Has Picked Up Popularity

Over a few years, the game of pickleball has gained a lot of steam all across the country and even the world. There have been several news stories over the last few years about pickleball's rising popularity. There was even a story written a few years ago about the self-proclaimed "Mecca of Pickleball"  right here in a town in Florida.

The game of pickleball has been around since 1965. Interestingly, the game was created on the other end of the country in Seattle Washington. The game got its name from the creator's cocker spaniel who was named Pickles. The cute pooch would chase balls around and hide them in the bushes. 

Pickleball was first most popular with retirement communities and spread like wildfire across states like Florida, Arizona, and California. Today it is popular with people of all ages and is easily played across generations. This is perhaps why it is so loved. The sport has now grown into having its own sports associations and popular tournaments around the country.
