Rossmoor offers opportunities to play both Tennis and Pickleball with available courts and clubs to foster play.
While current state and local COVID mandates now require only singles play, most play in Rossmoor during normal times has been typically doubles.
As both sports offer chances for healthy outdoor exercise and wonderful camaraderie, there are basic similarities and differences.
Similarities include required personal equipment, netted play courts and coordination of court usage. Overall physical fitness and agility is also needed in both sports and both can be played on indoor or outdoor courts.
Basic differences include the size of the court and the style of both the balls and rackets/paddles. While both require good eye/hand coordination the different court size means a different pace of play as well as different scoring and player rating systems. Each sport offers drop-in play and set game opportunities. Drop-in play allows new players to learn the game and meet potential players.
Many enthusiasts, especially here in Rossmoor, play both sports.
