Seven Oaks Living – June 2021

Pickleball is Taking the Country and Bakersfield by Storm

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports across the United States with players of all age groups taking to the courts. In case you haven’t caught on to the latest trend, pickleball is a kind of mashup of tennis, racquetball and ping pong. The court is about the same size as a badminton court and players use solid paddles and a plastic ball much like a wiffle ball. The smaller court makes playing pickleball easy for everyone from children to active adults; the high energy and simple rules make it a fun activity for all. Parks all over Bakersfield are converting their tennis courts to making playing pickleball easy.

Residents in Highgate at Seven Oaks are also enjoying pickleball as one of the recreational amenities in this private, gated community. Highgate Regents, the Active Adult community in Highgate at Seven Oaks, features two covered pickleball courts.
