Pickleball is a game similar to tennis but played with a slow-flying hollow perforated plastic ball and paddle-like rackets. The court is similar to a shuttlecock court in dimensions but the net is lowered like a tennis net.

How to map

Draw a closed area around the pickleball court or just add a node at the centre.

Always add both the sport=pickleball tag and one of the leisure tags shown below.
