Get in on the Fun at The Villas at Waterside Luxury Apartments

You’ve heard everyone talking about pickleball in Kansas City, and how fun it is to play with your friends and family. At the Villas at Waterside, we couldn’t agree more! See why this sport from the 1960s is making a comeback in Kansas City, and how you can play when you rent one of our luxury apartments.

What Is Pickleball, and What Are the Rules?

Pickleball is a super fun sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It’s easy to play and safe for all ages. Most people play pickleball outside, but you can find many indoor courts to play on during the winter.

A pickleball court is about the same size as a badminton court and uses a modified tennis net that's much smaller. You play with a paddle and a ball with holes. It’s a great way to spend time with friends, because you can play singles and doubles.

Games are usually played until one team has reached 11 points. However, a team must win by two points, in order to win. Keep the pickleball in the court by hitting it back and forth with your paddles. The ball needs to bounce on each side of the court after it’s served, but after that, you can play it off a bounce or hit it before it bounces.
