Have you heard about this thing all the kids are talking about lately called “Pickleball”? We might have heard a thing or two about the fastest growing sport in America that is a hybrid of ping pong, badminton, and tennis. We might have also heard that its being embraced by millions of people older than 50, who are typically one of the country’s more sedentary age groups.

Dr. Nathan Skelley can attest as fun as pickleball is for anyone of any age, it’s also important for anyone of any age to approach it wisely.

He’s a sports medicine surgeon with Sanford Orthopedics and Sports Medicine and says that means, not doing too much, too soon and listening to your body.
